A true story or a tall tale the Film "Love and pigeons" is based on real events. Screenwriter and the author of the play, the playwright Vladimir Gurkin hails from the city Cheremkhovo (Irkutsk region).

Watch the film and just swim in ice-cold water (14 degrees!) it was quite difficult, and Mikhailov and hating the cold, Jack had to conduct dialogue and to pretend that it is happening on the beach. It was difficult and extras. After the shooting of the episode Menchov undressed and jumped into the water as a sign of solidarity.

A little bit of magic in order to capture spectacular scene with blooming tree in Medvezh'yegorsk called the magician. He hid in the branches a dozen canes — requisite for a well-known trick. So the cane was covered with flowers, enough to pull the rope, but they were all afraid that canes don't work at the same time. But the crew was lucky: the tree "blossomed" on the first take, while kissing Mikhailov and Doroshina.
