The jubilee of Leonid Yarmolnik almost coincided with the world premiere of the last film of Aleksey German "It is Difficult to be the God". It is probably one of the best presents that the actor could get to his diamond anniversary.
For the leading role in this film, Leonid refused to take part in all other projects for 3 years. The work over the film "It is Difficult to be the God" began in 1999. At that moment denying all other jobs was at least a courageous step of a decisive man. Once somebody told to Yarmolnik: "Just let the film "It is Difficult to be the God" to be released and everybody will understand that you are a real actor". Leonid Isakovich is not offended with such words. He simply does his work.
