The first trailer of the film "Bender: The Beginning" has appeared on the network, in which the story of Ostap Bender - the famous character of the novels "Twelve Chairs" and "The Golden Calf" by Ilf and Petrov, is rethought.

There are two main characters here: the young idealist Osya, who has yet to become a "great schemer", and the experienced swindler Ibrahim Bender, who is happy to teach the young man all the tricks of flattery, deception and blackmail.
