The details


Pyotr Yefimovich Todorovsky (Russian: Пётр Ефи́мович Тодоро́вский, Ukrainian: Петро Юхимович Тодоровський, 26 August 1925 – 24 May 2013) was a Russian film director, screenwriter and cinematographer of Jewish origin. His son Valery Todorovsky is also a film director.


Todorovsky joined the Red Army during World War II and drew on his war experiences for a number of films, including Rio-Rita (2008). In the 1950s, he worked as a cinematographer for Marlen Khutsiev. He liked to play guitar and composed songs for some of his films.

Todorovsky's early 1980s melodramas gained him wide popularity in the Soviet Union. They have been described as "delightfully unpretentious comedies, homourous and touching at the same time".

Todorovsky's Intergirl (1989) was the first Soviet film about prostitution and caused quite a stir. His next film Encore, Once More Encore! (1992) presents a grim picture of moral prostitution in a dull, provincial garrison town.


Todorovsky was named a People's Artist of Russia in 1985. Encore, Once More, Encore! won the 1992 Nika Award for Best Film. Wartime Romance (1983) was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. It was also entered into the 34th Berlin International Film Festival, where Inna Churikova won the Silver Bear for Best Actress.
