Rus­sian film di­rec­tor Stanislav Govorukhin dies at 82

Cape Breton Post - - OBITUARIES -

MOSCOW - Stanislav Govorukhin, a prom­i­nent Rus­sian film di­rec­tor who made some of the na­tion’s most iconic movies, has died. He was 82. Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin sent his con­do­lences Thursday to Govorukhin’s fam­ily, prais­ing him as a “bright and ex­tra­or­di­nary” ta­lent. Govorukhin’s early work in­cluded a 1967 film about ro­man­tic moun­taineers that re­flected the spirit of the 1960s po­lit­i­cal thaw.

His most fa­mous pro­duc­tion was “The Meet­ing Place Can’t Be Changed,” a 1979 po­lice saga set in the late 1940s, full of strong char­ac­ters and dark hu­mour.
