Accidentally finding themselves in a half-abandoned hotel, the happy newlyweds get acquainted not only with its strange owner, but also with each other's unsolved secrets. Will the lovers be able to maintain a relationship after what they have heard? Earn forgiveness? And if the truth is really capable of liberating, then which of them?
The script of the psychological drama "Hotel" was waiting in the wings for several years, until in 2019, director Alexander Baluyev offered Marina Petrenko, the general producer of the Marusya Production film company, to make a film "about true love, which is so rare in our time". Thus, thanks to this film, a triple debut took place: the directorial debut of Alexander Baluyev, the debut of actress Marina Petrenko as the general producer of the film company and the acting debut of Gleb Matveychuk, whom many people know as a composer and singer.
The shooting of the "Hotel", despite the intimate nature of the story, required serious preparation. The film crew of the project was the first after the quarantine to enter the shooting pavilion of the Mosfilm Film Concern.
After the filming of the Moscow block was completed,the film crew went to the shore of the eternally cold Baltic Sea, to the Kaliningrad region.
The production designer Sergey Austrievskikh and his team built the scenery of an abandoned hotel on the sand in a matter of days.
Passing through the camera lens of the director of photography Alexander Nosovsky, the scenery seemed to come to life and began to exist in parallel with the characters, periodically becoming sinister and gloomy, then contrastingly bright and filled with fresh sea air.
Now the "Hotel" is at the finish line-the editing of the film is coming to an end, and it means that very soon the viewer will have to find out what secrets the characters so carefully hid from each other…
