Biography

Son arrière-grand-père était un aristocrate polonais (Wierzbicki), originaire de Cracovie. Sa grand-mère était costumière de théâtre, aussi son enfance se passa-t-elle dans les coulisses du théâtre. Il entra donc à l'Institut d'art dramatique Ostrovsky de Tachkent.

À la faculté de cinéma, il rencontre Timur Bekmambetov qui le fait tourner plus tard dans un film en 1994 sur la guerre d'Afghanistan, La Valse de Peshawar, et dans des clips publicitaires, notamment dans un clip pour la banque Impérial, où il joue le rôle, devenu célèbre, de Nicolas Ier de Russie, ce qui lui vaut le surnom de « Votre Altesse ». Il reprend ce rôle dans la série télévisée russe Pauvre Nastia.

Il tourne ensuite avec Bekmambetov dans Gladiatrix (The Arena en anglais), en 2001, et dans Night Watch (Notchnoï Dozor) en 2004, adapté du roman de Sergueï Loukianenko Les Sentinelles de la nuit.

Il a joué récemment dans le film Amiral, sorti en 2008, (sur la vie de l'amiral Koltchak), le rôle de Kerensky, aux côtés de Richard Bohringer, Sergueï Bezroukov, Konstantin Khabensky… qui a rencontré un grand succès en Russie.

Parallèlement au cinéma, Viktor Verjbitsky est un acteur de théâtre reconnu depuis 1996. Il a joué dans des pièces de Shakespeare, George Bernard Shaw, Tchekhov, Camus, Cocteau, Boulgakov, et a fait partie de la troupe du théâtre Et cetera à Moscou.

The film opens during the production of War and Peace at Mosfilm Studios in 1964. An elderly Russian noblewoman is set to appear as a film extra until her past comes to light. Although the film's political commissar demands her dismissal since she is a "wife of an enemy of the revolution", director Sergei Bondarchuk is adamant that he needs faces like hers for the production. As the commissar realises the difficulty of identifying her using the file he has, he immediately recognises the elderly woman behind him as the woman he is searching for, while the elderly woman is looking at her own 1910s photo.

The jury decides whether a young Chechen boy is guilty of the murder of his stepfather, a Russian military officer. Initially it seems that the boy was the murderer. However, one of the jurors (Sergei Makovetsky) votes in favour of acquittal. Since the verdict must be rendered unanimously, the jurors review the case, and one by one come to the conclusion that the boy was framed. The murder was performed by criminals involved in the construction business. The discussion is repeatedly interrupted by flashbacks from the boy's wartime childhood.

The characters from the first film now have children, who have managed to get into the same situation as their parents many years ago. However, this story is not simply a remake of the original movie. Firstly, all of Lukashin's adventures were accidental, whereas here everything is done according to a plan thought up by Pavlik (a friend of Lukashin's). His idea is to help his friend Evgeniy with his loneliness. To this end, he dispatches Lukashin's son Kostya to Petersburg, where he acts in the same manner as his father 30 years ago. In flat 12 he meets Nadejda (who is actually the daughter of Nadejda from the first movie). She has a fiancé called Irakliy, a businessman. Kostantin's task is to lure Iracliy away from the flat, then wait for Nadejda's mother to come; he then makes her call Evgeniy Lukashin. Pavlik persuades Evgeniy to go to St. Petersburg. The plot becomes a story of two fights over a woman: Konstantin vs. Irakliy and Evgeniy vs. Ippolit. Finally Lukashins win the competition, because Irakliy turns out to be too dull for Nadya and Nadejda understands that she was never in love with Ippolit.

The Others are divided into two camps, with each Other either allied with the forces of Light or the forces of Darkness, and the prologue recounts a great battle between the two sides. Geser, the Lord of the Light, realized that the two forces would eventually annihilate each other. He stopped the battle and offered a truce to the forces of Darkness, led by Zavulon. To make sure each side honored its side of the agreement, the Light would have a "Night Watch" to monitor the forces of Darkness at night, and the Darkness would have a "Day Watch" to police the forces of Light during the day. This agreement maintained balance for centuries to come.
