Biography
Georgi Daneliya is a Russian film director of Georgian descent, who became known throughout the Soviet Union for his sad comedies (as he styles them), bittersweet as the life itself. In 1955 Danelia graduated from the Moscow Architecture Institute and worked briefly as an architect when he decided he would rather be in films. In 1956 he entered the Higher Director's Courses at the Mosfilm Studio where his teachers were Mikhail Romm, Sergei Yutkevich, Leonid Trauberg, Yuli Raizman, and Mikhail Kalatozov. In 1962 he debuted with The Way to the Wharf. His 1964 feature I Walk Down Moscow, starring Nikita Mikhalkov, is one of the most characteristic films of the Khrushchev Thaw. A fine blend of humor and melancholy he successfully used in 1969 comedy Don't Worry!. His most popular movies were probably Mimino (1977), about a Georgian pilot's adventures in Moscow, and The Autumn Marathon (1980), about a translator vacillating between his wife and mistress. In 1986 he directed a weird sci-fi feature, Kin-dza-dza!. Most of his films featured his then wife Lyuba Sokolova, which has been cited by the Guinness Book of Records as the most prolific film actress ever.
