Netflix Movies Starring Vladimir Menshov

Vladimir Menshov - Russian director and actor, noted for the depicting of the Russian Everyman and working class life in his films. Born on September, 17, 1937 in Baku (then USSR, now the territory of Azerbaijan) like many Russian directors and actors Menshov studied acting and directing at the state film school VGIK. Although his filmography as actor is superior to that as director (actually confined to only five movies), he will be remembered first of all as Academy Award (Oscar) winning film director, one of the most popular and beloved directors in Russia. His only second feature length Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears (1979) (starring his wife Vera Alentova) brought him international recognition and Oscar for the Best Foreign Film. Menshov did not attend the Academy Award ceremony personally because he could not leave the country due to some problems of political nature and the prize statuette was accepted by the USSR Commissioner to the US.
