Biography Konchalovsky Andron Sergeyevich
Born August 20, 1937. As a young man preparing to become a pianist, studied at the Conservatory. But from the third year went to VGIK, the workshop of Mikhail Romm, director of the beautiful, the wise wizard who brought up so different, dissimilar filmmakers like Tarkovsky, Shukshin Chukhrai, Andrei Smirnov, Solovyov, Mitt.
. Even learning VGIK, . Konchalovsky appeared as an actor in several episodic roles ( "Ivan's Childhood, . "The court lunatics"), . wrote the script with Tarkovsky Ivan's Childhood "(soon they will write a script together about Andrei Rublev -" The Passion According to Andrew "), . withdrew inspired by the poetic cinematography Albert Lyamorissa short film "The Boy and the Dove" (1961, . Bronze Lion, Venice Film Festival),
. His thesis was "The First Teacher" (1965) on the novel by Chingiz Aitmatov, the movie passionate, furious, not at all kindly showed the break-up, which brought with it a revolution of the peoples of the former Empire of Russia. By opening the film was a young Kazakh actress Natalia Arinbasarova, played the role Altynay, for which the Venice Film Festival was awarded the Volpi Cup. By this time she was Konchalovsky's wife, the mother of his son Yegor.
. Next Konchalovsky's film "The history of Asia Kliachina, which she loved, but did not marry" (1967), filmed on the script Yuri Klepikova "The Year of the Quiet Sun," won the State Prize of Russia 22 years after its creation
. For many years he had lain on the shelf: not so wanted to see on the screen of Russia's village party leadership, too much truth was brought to the screen is non-professional actors, who played in the films themselves, their fate, have expressed their understanding of the world. Few of the role played by professional actors in the movie: they are primarily played Asya Ia Savva, withstood a difficult test - to be on the screen such as real as real people from real life. The film has been fundamentally important for Konchalovsky: in it he declared himself as the director of Russian, spoke about Russia, about his love for her faith in the strength of its people hope for her future ...
. After the black and white, almost dokumentalistskoy stingy style of the film follows the work of the director, film adaptation of Turgenev's "Noble Nest" (1969), seemed a dazzling celebration of light and color
. Operator George Rerberg unfolded on the screen of a brilliant palette of colors, some before, probably not unknown for the world cinema. Some of the critics accused the film on this subject in the pursuit of self-sufficient beauty, in the care of current problems in the admiration of the world estetizirovannym bygone aristocratic life. In essence, the director stayed true to himself: he was still talking about his love for Russia, his faith in her, his anxiety for its destiny. Interest to him than social conflict, remaining in the past, and moral quest of its "I". Directed here talking about the bitter happiness belong to Russia ...
. Following the "Noble Nest" has another screening - "Uncle Vanya" (1971, . Silver Shell Festival in San Sebastian) on Chekhov, . with a beautiful constellation of actors (I. Smoktunovskij, . Miroshnichenko, . S. Bondarchuk, . I. Kupchenko), . with excellent plastic solutions (operators Rerberg G. and E. Gusinsky), . with the wise and all the same bitter gaze directed at the author who comes to the ruined and desolate Russia,
. Is it about that, the outdated pre-revolutionary Russia was thinking Konchalovsky, shooting this film?
. Unexpectedly, and all equally natural was his treatment of the script, E. Grigorieva "Romance of Lovers" (1974), . where the characters speaking white verse, . where the whole world appeared as nibs life, . where raised to solemn buskins concept of love, . debt, . honor, . Homeland,
. The film won the Grand Prix in Karlovy Vary, had audience success (40 million. viewers), that did not stop and sharply critical reviews about him. Some caught sight of the film sermon imperial militarism, . others do not have style film, . where the two faced as it were incompatible parts: the first, . color, . romantically elevated, . and second, . black, . landing, . and still talking about the greatness of love, . its great humanizes and inspiring force,
. Another large scale and struck four-part epic Siberiade (1979, . Grand Prix of the Jury at Cannes), . covering almost the whole century life in Russia, . built on the collision of personal destinies of heroes and tragic upheavals complete history of the state,
. This is a complex intersection, a comparison of micro and macro - all distinguishing characteristic of artistic thinking producer.
After Siberiade director went to the West. In fact, it was the emigration, although Konchalovsky, by then already married to a citizen of France, had all Soviet law the right to live and work abroad. In Hollywood, he had to restart from scratch, to prove their ownership of producers profession. Only four years later he finally managed to get to the set. In the movie "Beloved Mary, he used the plot outline of the story of Andrei Platonov" River Potudan "by shifting his action to the U.S.. However, and here he remained true to himself, plunging the effect of a Slavic environment of the Serb community small provincial town, taking its theme of love: its strangeness, its unpredictability, its vivifying force
. The success of the picture allowed Konchalovsky already on his next picture "Runaway Train" (1985), the script by Akira Kurosawa, working in full force of his talent
. The plot - the story of two prisoners who escaped from prison to freedom, who were on lost control, rushing at full speed tandem locomotives. The story offers an excellent opportunity to create an impressive metaphor of modernity. Is it possible in this mad, the world lost its brakes remain a man? No illusions either about the state of the world, nor about human nature as such, Konchalovsky still gave an affirmative answer. Man is able to withstand the test of tragic freedom, retaining his rights.
. The next American film producer "Duet for soloist", . "Shy People", . "Homer and Eddie", . chamber, . psychological, . built on subtle nuances of feelings and relationships of characters, . showed, . that the director seeks in the world industry blockbusters save face, . its author's "I",
. However, the temptation blockbuster he was also. Konchalovsky took place a large multi-million dollar product - "Tango and Cash", . with the renowned Stallone, . one of the most expensive at the time stars, . with a steep adventure story, . with spectacular special effects, . with millions, . wasted on advertising and related goods (merchandise),
. Contact with the producer the director did not work, the director did not want to lose their copyright and the person left the production, not dosnyav now ...
By this time the situation in Russia has changed drastically, restructuring has started, all gaining momentum. Now no one bothered Konchalovsky work where he currently wants - no matter in Hollywood, or at Mosfilm.
In the years since his return to the motherland, the director had quite a lot. A film: "The Inner Circle" (1991), . reflection on the nature of Stalinism on the material of the fate of the "little man" - Stalin's projectionist, "Hen Ryaba" (1994), . continued grotesque fate Asia Kliachina in post-Communist Russia after 25 years (Ia Savvina refused to play Asya, . in this role withdrew Inna Churikova), "House of Fools" (2002, . Grand Prix of the jury at Venice Film Festival), . history of the inhabitants of a madhouse somewhere near the border with Chechnya during the first Chechen war: it, . what they - the only normal people are gone mad, . bloodstained world,
. Main role in the film played a young director's wife - actress Julia Vysotsky. For the TV screen in 1996-1997 Konchalovsky took four-part "Odyssey", the most expensive at that time the world's television productions, was awarded the highest award an American television Emmy. Epic mentality has always been characterized by the director, because in the ancient Homeric epic, he found much in tune with modernity, and his own fate.
. During these years Konchalovsky realized theatrical performances: "The Seagull" Chekhov in Paris "Odeon", . Tchaikovsky's opera "Eugene Onegin" and "Queen of Spades" in the "La Scala", . "War and Peace" by Prokofiev in sanktpeterburgskoy Mariinsky Theater and the Metropolitan Opera in New York, . "Un Ballo in Maschera" by Verdi at the Verdi Festival in Parma and at the Mariinsky Theater,
. In 1997, for the 850 anniversary of Moscow director has put a great superzrelische on Red Square, broadcast or video recording in the past in many countries.
