Movie (2019)
Russian title: Француз
English title: A Frenchman
French title : Le Français

Anton Rival (Pierre Durand, French student in Moscow)
Evgenia Obraztsova (Kira Galkina, Bolshoi Theatre ballerina)
Aleksandr Baluev (Tatishchev, former White Army officer)

A French student Pierre Durand comes to 1957 Moscow for an internship at Moscow State University, while trying to search for traces of his father, a White Army officer, who disappeared during Stalin’s Great Purge.

Tupolev Tu-104

A fully computer-generated sequence of 1957 Vnukovo, back then the only international airport in Moscow, with many Aeroflot planes. Although the plane in the picture is not real, a Tu-104A with registration number CCCP-Л5434 (SSSR-L5434) did exist in reality and served in Vnukovo flying squad during 1957—1958. Other computer generated Tu-104’s recognizable tail numbers include CCCP-Л5413 (SSSR-L54313) and CCCP-Л5423 (SSSR-L54323) ; the real prototypes were used by Vnukovo squad.

Tupolev Tu-104 and Ilyushin Il-14

Also seen in this scene among with Tu-104 are multiple CGI Ilyushin Il-14’s. The livery of Il-14 lacks historical accuracy (they did not carry a Soviet flag on the fin in 1950s). Another inaccuracy is complete absence of Li-2 and Il-12, which can be seen in big numbers on historical 1950s photos of Vnukovo.

Tupolev Tu-114

Although not shown outside, the cabin of Tu-114 can be seen in the scene where Pierre departs for France. The filming took place inside Tu-114 at Monino museum, reg. CCCP-Л5611 / SSSR-L5611, serial 5611 (see it in other movies). It was probably intended to pose as Tu-104, otherwise it would be a mistake, as Tu-114 did not enter commercial passenger service until 1961.
