Russian Film Director, Screenwriter and Cinematographer. He joined the Red Army during World War II and drew on his war experiences for a number of films, including Rio-Rita (2008). In the 1950s, he worked as a cinematographer for Marlen Khutsiev. Also a musician, he has composed songs for some of his films. His early 1980s melodramas gained him wide popularity in the Soviet Union. They have been described as "delightfully unpretentious comedies, humorous and touching at the same time". His Intergirl (1989) was the first Soviet film about prostitution, which caused controversy. His next film Encore, Once More Encore! (1992) presented a grim picture of moral prostitution in a dull, provincial garrison town. His 1995 film What a Wonderful Game was entered into the 19th Moscow International Film Festival. He was named People's Artist of Russia in 1985. Encore, Once More, Encore! won the 1992 Nika Award for Best Film. Wartime Romance (1983) was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. It was also entered into the 34th Berlin International Film Festival, where Inna Churikova won the Silver Bear for Best Actress.
