Smirnov, Andrei

Born: 12 March 1941 (Moscow)
Though his acting career has lasted over forty years, Smirnov also directed and wrote for film. Of note was his segment of the controversial film, Beginning of an Unknown Era, called Angel, which dared to explore late sixties political ambiguity in its Civil War era setting, and an ambitious adaptation of Tolstoy's War and Peace.
