Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Soviet director noted for his documentary-style camerawork and often grotesque, unsympathetic characters. Klimov was the founding First Secretary of the Union of Soviet Filmmakers and earned world-wide acclaim with "Come and See" (1985), a stark, unrelenting account of a young boy's passage to manhood as a partisan in war-torn Byelorussia in the early 1940s. Klimov was married to the late director Larisa Shepitko (1938-1979), whose unrealized final project, "Farewell" (1981), he directed.
