Yes, absolutely loved that one too. Bertolucci is a great director.
Anonymous asked: hello anastasia, who/what do you find inspiring inside/outside work? books,movies,music,art,people?
Oh wow, there is so much… I would have to make a long list, but the first few things from the top of my head, that I found inspiring recently:
Been reading a lot of Nabokov lately, he is magical to me, especially in Russian.
I recently watched several movies by Bernardo Bertolucci, which were amazing and beautiful. Besieged, Last tango in Paris, Strategia del Ragno. Also Krzysztof Kieslowski is my new favorite: His Three Colors trilogy is just such a pleasure to watch. Subtle, emotional, deep cinematography. Another beautiful film by him A short film about love. Just watched it today.
Every fall I go back to one of my favorite bands ever “Morphine”. They are timeless, sexy, and so unique. Been listening to them today, they go so well with the rain with their grungy sax. :)
I love art in all its forms, I often browse through photography blogs, searching for beauty among the old photos or contemporary fashion shoots. I also feel super inspired after visiting museums, especially 19th-20th century section.
Obsessed with FKA twigs, her music and visuals are out of this world. Similar impact Bjork had on me when I first discovered her.
Nature and cities with character are very inspiring too.
Thanks for the question. :)

I was born in Moldova, but I lived all my life in Ukraine, so I don’t speak Romanian, just Russian and Ukrainian. And English. :)
