Having visited the House-Museum of the writer, Pavel Eugeniyevich shared his recollections with the museum-workers about shooting the film, which had taken place on the Sholokhov land, told about his life following the film shooting.

Here is one of the opinions left by the visitors of the “Sholokhov Spring - 2009”:

“I admire the literary and social work of M.A. Sholokhov. I know Mikhail Alexandrovich personally. For me he is a standard of honesty, diligence, principle position and a deep knowledge of life.

I am very much grateful to the museum-workers of the Estate for their work. “Regioner”, The First Secretary of the Bokovskiy District Party Committee in 1983-1987, A.K. Goncharov”.
