Denis Nikiforov Movies and Career Information
Denis Nikiforov is a Russian actor who appears in the Russian movie 'Shadowboxing' (original title in Russian 'Boy s tenyu') as the boxer Artem Kolchin. While this is a movie of dubious artistical and critical merit, it was the first Hollywood style movie to be created in Russia. It should also be noted that the early boxing ring scenes are beautifully filmed, and many of the widescreen shots of Russian landscapes are somewhat breathtaking. The plot jumps from boxing wannabe Nikiforov, to a love story epic, with undertones of Russian mafia influence and police corruption. There is also an element of Russian everyday life and culture interspersed into the movie; the directors have attempted to show another previously unseen facet of Russian life, albeit with limited, sometimes confusing success. He has also appeared in 'Diversant 2: Konec vojny' English title 'The Saboteur 2'; 'Boy s tenyu 2', English title 'Shadow Boxing 2', again as Artem Kolchin;'Posledniy bronepoezd', English title 'Teplo', and 'Tanker', English title 'Tango'
