    Anatoly Kotenev was born in Abkhazia in September 1958. But Sukhumi family left when my son turned a year. Koteneva moved to Stavropol Krai, where to stay in Nevinnomyssk. Here was the youth of the future artist. In his family no one was associated with the world of art. My mother worked as a kindergarten teacher. Father was a machinist.

    In childhood Kotenev, like many of his peers, he dreamed of becoming a sailor.

    The 1990s turned to Anatoly, like most of his colleagues heavy. The role was not offered neither Belarusian nor Russian film Studio. The only worthy work of this period was the tape «Between life and death», filmed at Belarusfilm. Here Kotenev played in tandem with Evgeny Sidihin.

    And yet in Moscow, unlike Minsk, there were more opportunities for artists. So he left the family, moved to the Russian capital. And soon really was able to find a job.
