Birgit Beumers explores Nikita Mikhalkov's films in the light of his development as a filmmaker and of the historical and cultural contexts of the periods in which he has worked - stretching from Khrushchev's Thaw through the Brezhnev stagnation, to glasnost and perestroika into the post-Soviet period…





Adored by Russian audiences for his commercially-oriented films, and loathed by the Russian intelligentsia for the same, Nikita Mikhalkov is one of the most successful, ambitious and controversial film-directors in the history of Soviet and Russian cinema. Revealing and discussing the key themes explored in his work, Birgit Beumers follows his career from his 1974 debut At Home Among Strangers, a Stranger at Home; through to the French co-productions: the award-winning Urga and the internationally renowned Oscar-winning Burnt by the Sun, 1994.
