Nikita Serguéyevich Mikhalkov (Russian: Никита Сергеевич Михалков; Moscow, October 21, 1945) is a Russian actor and film director.
Beginnings as an actor
Mikhalkov studied acting as a child at the Moscow Art Theater and then at the Schukin School of the Vajtangov Theater. Still a student, he appeared in the film A walk in Moscow (Я шагаю по Москве – Ya shagayu po Moskvé) (1964) by Georgi Daneliya and in the film Nest of hidalgos (Дворянское гнездо – Dvoryánskoe gnezdó) (1969) directed by his brother Andréi Konchalovski. Soon she was on her way to becoming a Soviet movie star.
Beginnings as a director
While continuing his career as an actor, he went to the Pan-Soviet State Cinematography Institute (VGIK) where he studied direction under Mikhail Romm, master of his brother Andréi Konchalovski. He directed his first short film in 1968, I return home (А я уезжаю домой – A ya uezzhayu domoy) and another at his graduation, A quiet day at the end of the war (Спокойный день в конце войны – Spokoiny den v kontsé voiný) in 1970 Mijalkov had appeared in about twenty films, including that of his brother Uncle Vanya (1972), before collaborating in the screenplay, directing and interpreting his first work, At Home Among Strangers (Свой среди чужих, чужой среди своих – Svoy sredí chuzhij, chuzhoy sredí svoíj) in 1974, a Red Western located in the 1920s in the civil war in Russia.
Gaining international reputation
Mikhalkov established his international reputation with his second work, Slave of Love (1976). Developed in 1917, it narrated the efforts of a film crew to create a silent melodrama in a spa while the Russian revolution exploded around them. The film, based on the last days of Vera Jolódnaya, was acclaimed internationally after its premiere in the US.
Mikhalkov’s next film, An Unfinished Piece for Piano (1977) was an adaptation of an early play by Chekhov, Platoon. She won the first prize at the San Sebastian Film Festival. In 1978, while starring in the epic film of his brother Siberiada, Mijalkov made Cinco tardes, a love story about a couple separated by the Second World War that is reunited after 18 years. Mikhalkov’s next film, Oblomov (1980), with Oleg Tabakov in the lead role, was based on the homonymous novel by Ivan Goncharov about a lazy young nobleman who refuses to leave his bed. Relatives (1981) is a comedy about a provincial woman in Moscow involved in the complicated entanglements of her relatives. Without Witnesses (1983) follows the long nocturnal conversation between a woman, (Irina Kúpchenko) and her ex-husband (Mikhail Ulyanov) accidentally locked in a room.
At the beginning of the 80s, Mikhalkov resumed his career as an actor, appearing in Eldar Ryazanov’s popular Station for Two (1982) and in A Cruel Romance (1985). In that period he also played the role of Henry Baskerville in the Soviet version of The Dog of the Baskervilles. He also appeared in his own films, such as At Home Among Strangers, Slave of Love, An Unfinished Piece for Piano and Burn by the Sun.
Incorporating several short stories by Antón Chéjov, Ojos negros (1987) was starring Marcello Mastroianni as an older man who tells the story of a love he had in his youth with a woman he has been unable to forget. The film was acclaimed internationally, receiving Mastroianni the award for best actor at the Cannes Film Festival and nomination for an Oscar for his performance.
Mijalkov’s next film, Urga, the territory of love (1992), was set in the little known world of the Mongols, who live on the border between Russia and China. He received the Golden Lion of the Venice Film Festival and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Anna: 6-18 (1993), documents the growth of her daughter Anna as she grows from childhood to maturity.
The most famous Mijalkov production to date, Burned by the Sun (1994), was set in the tense atmosphere of the time of Stalin’s purges. The film received the grand prize of the Festival of Cannes and the Oscar prize to the best film in foreign language, among other many honors. In 2000, Quemado por el Sol was the most profitable film produced in Eastern Europe.
Mikhalkov used the prestige and money of Burned by the Sun to accumulate $ 25,000,000 budget for his greatest epic production to date, The Barber of Siberia (1998). The film, which opened the 1998 Cannes Film Festival, was designed as a patriotic extravagance of domestic consumption. Julia Ormond and Oleg Menshikov (a regular of Mijalkov) played the lead roles, while the director appeared as Tsar Alexander III of Russia.
The film received the Russian state prize and fired rumors about Mijalkov’s presidential ambitions. The director, however, chose the administration of the Russian film industry. Despite opposition from rival directors, he was elected president of the Russian company of filmmakers and has directed the Moscow Film Festival since 2000. He also established the Golden Eagle Award of the Russian academy in opposition to the traditional Nika Award.
In 2005, Mijalkov resumed his acting career, starring in new films – The State Councilor (based on a novel by Boris Akunin), which broke box office records in Russia; Zhmurki, a black comedy about the Russian mafia; and the film by Krzysztof Zanussi Persona non grata.
In October 2006, Mikhalkov was in Serbia, giving moral support to the Serbian sovereignty over Kosovo.
In September 2007, Mijalkov’s film 12, an adaptation of Sidney Lumet’s legal drama Twelve Men Mercilessly, received a special Golden Lion and was praised by numerous critics at the Venice Film Festival. He has recently taken on the role of executive producer of the 1612 epic film.
Mijalkov’s personal life has been as varied as his film career.
His first wife was the renowned Russian actress Anastasia Vertínskaya, whom he married in 1966. They have a son, Stepan Mijalkov, born in September 1966.
With his second wife the ex-model Tatyana, he has had his son Artiom (1975) and daughters Anna (1974) and Nadya (1986).
