MOSCOW, December 6 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has congratulated acclaimed Russian film director and script writer Vladimir Naumov on his 85th birthday, the Kremlin press service reported on Thursday.
“You have devoted your brilliant and versatile talent to Russian cinema, you have achieved impressive success in one of the most difficult creative professions – that of a film maker. Your films are now classics, which is a deserved recognition for your diligent labor, your talents to form remarkable actors’ ensembles, to choose themes of interest for the audience,” the president said in his congratulatory telegram.
Naumov’s best films include Pavel Korchagin (1957), which won the Silver Prize for best directing of the Moscow International Film Festival, Peace to Him Who Enters (1961), which was a best directing award at the 22nd Venice Film Festival, The Flight (1970), Russia’s first screen version of Mikhail Bulgakov’s novel, which was recognized as the best film of the year in the former Soviet Union, and Tehran 43 (1980), staring Natalia Belokhvostikova and Alain Delon. In 1963, Vladimir Naumov became the head of the Mosfilm film association. Apart from that, he was elected president of the National Academy of Cinema Arts and Sciences.
