Have you ever filmed any important events in your family or would you like to have any events filmed?

We do things like that occasionally not on a regular basis. As time goes the memories about some pleasant events in people’s lives on which we are happy to look back are inevitably fade away. Watching filmed events helps people to recall how happy they were on this or that day. Especially when there are no people who can remind us about what is the past now which may become well forgotten in the future.

Do you think that food habits depend on the country where you live?

As there exist such things as national cuisines I think that there is some connection between the place you live and the things you eat. Traditional food is what may set apart different peoples apart. The French were known for their obsession with cheese. The Italians were closely associated with spaghetti. It has been the case for centuries but nowadays thanks to the process referred to as globalisation the situation is changing worldwide. You can seen the Japanesse eating pancakes and the Russians eating sushi.

Do you prefer to read a book or to watch a film based on this book?

As for me I prefer to read books in the original only. Any translation even if it is masterly made adds something which is not the author’s but the translator’s point of view on the story told. If I wanted to have a story retold I would read an abridged version of it. There are the so called graded books which are specific versions of the original ones. Graded books are written in a specific way which allows people with e different level command of a language to read and understand them. As for films based on books I prefer not to watch them as the difference between stories both written and shot is considerable.

Do you agree that people who look different are strange?

Something which you are not used to inevitably comes as a shock. It’s no use denying that. Of course newness in something doesn’t call for any knee-jerk reaction. Different doesn’t mean bad. Many roads may lead to Rome. The best thing to do when you come across something which is new to you is to think how to enrich your inner world. It goes without saying that anything should be dealt with extreme cautious as you may find yourself in a situation when you will be pointed at and run down.

Is it a good idea to look like you friends?

I reckon that it is rather difficult to the answer which suits everyone. Some say that similarity in appearance is good ’cause it eases communicating. You see, you are not afraid of being laughed at your clothes. If you have any doubts about what to wear and you see that there are people whose views are similar you don’t feel that you are out of place. Hanging around with those who are like you is not the worst way of passing the time. In terms of practicality it may seem useless but some psychologists say it helps to understand who you are and what you really want
