Sergei Yutkevich


Sergei Yutkevich

Sergei Iosifovich Yutkevich (Russian: Сергей Иосифович Юткевич, born September 15, 1904; died April 24, 1985) was an award-winning Soviet film director.

Life and career

He began work as a teen doing puppet shows. Later he helped found the "Factory of the Eccentric Actor", which was primarily concerned with circus and music hall acts. He entered films in the 1920s and began directing in 1928. His films often were cheerier than most Russian films as he was influenced by American slapstick, among other things. However he also did serious historical films, docudramas, and biopics. [ [http://movies.nytimes.com/person/178464/Sergei-Yutkevich All Movie Guide] ] He won Cannes's Best Director Award for "Othello" in 1956 and in 1966 he won it again for "Lenin in Poland". He was the second director to win twice, René Clément being the first. Of his later films "Lenin in Paris" is among the best known.
