Grigory Chukhrai passed away of an apparent heart attack Sunday 28 October 2001 in a moscow Hospital. http://www.cnn.com/2001/SHOWBIZ/Movi...bit/index.html Best know for the indredible film Ballad of a Soldier. A quick check to confirm, seems you can not get his films on DVD. A shame, some of them are remarkable, and I have always enjoyed viewing soviet era films. ------------------ "Dear Diary, My teen angst bullshit now has a body count" - Veronica Sawyer Lance Nichols The Nichols Collection, now showing.
