Profile Bio Text
Nikita Mikhalkov is the son of the communist poet Sergei Vladimirovich Mikhalkov who wrote the lyrics of the Soviet national anthem and had strong connections to the Communist Party. Nikita Mikhalkov`s mother, Natalya Petrovna Konchalovskaya, was also a poet and daughter of famous painter Pyotr Petrovich Konchalovsky by his wife Olga Vasilievna Surikova, and by her the great granddaughter of another great painter Vasily Surikov. Communist and noble ancestry allowed Nikita sitting pretty under both Soviet and democratic regimes.
Mikhalkov was educated at the state film school VGIK and graduated in 1971 with a short film "Quiet Day at War`s End as his degree project". He quickly established himself as one of the most promising Russian directors with a vision of his own.
Mikhailkov has impressive long list of wins at Cannes, Venice, Moscow, Karlovy Vary, European Film Awards etc.
Mikhalkov won the Academy Award for the Best Foreign Film "Burnt by the Sun" Utomlyonnye solntsem (1994), but is also well known as an actor, appearing in over 40 films. Mikhalkov often starred in his films and occasionally appeared in other directors` movies. Mikhalkov became the third Russian director to receive Oscar after Sergei Bondarchuk (in 1961) and Vladimir Menshov (in 1980). Because of his controversial political views he fell from public favor in the late 1990s.Opinions on his directing polarize. Some view him as the greatest living Russian film-maker. The others say that he is a typical old school director who fails to produce new ideas in his films. All his last projects had a pronounced timeserving, opportunistic nature and became commercial disasters.
