Very Murray Christmas, 2015 merry Murray Christmas!

But is it worth it to lose heart about this on Christmas eve? We strongly recommend watching the film in English with Russian subtitles and enjoy “Jingle Bells”, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” and “the Christmas Blues” in the original language.

Perhaps that’s why the shooting of “Friends of Peter” took ten days, and the opening scene, including behind-the-scenes jokes and dancing, turned out to be the first take.
