Windsor Star - - MOVIES -

Ro­ma­nian the­atre di­rec­tor and film­maker Lu­cian Pin­tilie, who em­i­grated af­ter fall­ing out with the com­mu­nists and then made a ca­reer in France and the U.S., has died. He was 84. The Elias Hos­pi­tal in Bucharest said Pin­tilied died Wed­nes­day. He di­rected plays at the pres­ti­gious Bu­lan­dra The­atre in Bucharest in the 1960s and early ’70s. But the com­mu­nists cen­sored his work and party leader Ni­co­lae Ceaus­escu per­son­ally banned one film. Pin­tilie moved to France and di­rected plays at the The­atre Na­tional de Chail­lot and the The­atre de la Ville in Paris, where he staged Hen­rik Ib­sen’s The Wild Duck and An­ton Chekhov’s Three Sisters.
