Czech filmmaker and director Milos Forman, who won an Oscar for his film One Who Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and Amadeus dies at 86.
Dennis Aspland, who is Milos' representative has shared this news with the world.
Milos Forman's parents were killed in the Nazi concentration camp during the World War II.
In his biography, Forman had said, "My parents were real patriots, and that was probably the reason why they died. Not until much later, when I was suddenly far from my homeland and its culture, far away from my family, when I was cut away from the land of my childhood, I realized I shared this strong feeling of affection for my country with them."
He studied film direction at Prague Film Academy. He started his filmmaking career with the films like 'Loves of a Blonde' and 'The Fireman's Ball,' and both of them were nominated for the Oscars in Foreign Language film category.
Soon he rose to fame in the year 1975 when he directed an Oscar-winning film, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. It was an adaptation of Ken Kesey's novel. The film had won five Oscars in total, including the best picture and best director.
Milos Forman was a man of art.
May his soul rest in peace.
