Text (Russian: Текст) is a 2019 Russian crime drama psychological thriller film directed by Klim Shipenko, an adaptation of the best-selling novel Text (2017) by writer Dmitry Glukhovsky, who adapted the novel into a movie script.[1] The film stars Alexander Petrov, Ivan Yankovsky and Kristina Asmus.[2][3]

Text was released in wide distribution in Russia on October 24, 2019. Having recouped its budget,[4] the film achieved box office success[5] and received generally positive reviews from Russian film critics. The film won four Golden Eagle Awards (2020) for Best Motion Picture, Best Leading Actor (Alexander Petrov), Best Supporting Actor (Ivan Yankovsky), and Best Film Editing.


The film tells the story of a man, Ilya Goryunov, who ends up behind bars on a false charge. Once on the outside, he realizes that it is no longer possible to return to his former life for which is his so nostalgic and he decides to take revenge on the man whose fault it was that he ended up in prison. As a result of their meeting, Ilya ends up in possession of the offender’s smartphone and through a series of texts gradually takes his place.[6]

The novel Text (ru) by Dmitry Glukhovsky, the author of the Metro 2033 series, was released in 2017 and was later translated into more than 20 languages.[7] Within a week of the release of the book, Glukhovsky received about ten offers of a film adaptation, including from Alexander Rodnyansky and Timur Bekmambetov, who wanted to make a film in the screenlife genre.[8] Offers also came from the United States, Italy and South Korea.[9] On October 21, 2019, Glukhovsky said that in parallel with the Russian company, the rights to the film adaptation were bought by an American company.[10]


At the start of filming, Dmitry Glukhovsky offered director Klim Shipenko a script of Text that he already had, to which the director asked for some adjustments.[11] Due to a busy travel schedule, Glukhovsky managed to visit the film set just a few times. He repeatedly met with the director and talked with the actors about their roles and also played a cameo role as a metro passenger in one scene of the film.

Principal photography took place in January - March 2019. Instead of Lobnya, the town of Dzerzhinsky, Moscow Oblast was used for filming, also shooting took place in Moscow and the Maldives. Filming in the Goryunov apartment took place in an ordinary residential building. The scene in the sewer was filmed in a real sewer in Troparyovo-Nikulino District at a depth of about 10 meters. Scenes in the underground railway took place in the Moscow metro having negotiated official permission. Kristina Asmus also plays her heroine Nina in the eponymous production of the Yermolova Theatre.

Scenes on the streets, in the metro and on trains were shot without blocking off the area to ordinary passers-by and passengers - with the help of a half-hidden camera placed in an animal carrier


Basta (rapper), having watched the film, wrote the song It’s scary to live like this, the director of the clip was Klim Shipenko. Alexander Petrov appears in the video in the image of Ilya Goryunov and performs the verse.


The film was released in Russia by Central Partnership on October 24, 2019.
