Personal Quote:

«You never know what you miss the most in your life and only within years you understand - time» Anatoly Solonitsyn


Andrei Tarkovsky intended for Solonistyn to star in Nostagia (1983) but Solonitsyn was too ill to travel to Italy where it was being shot. The part went to Oleg Yankovsky and Anatoly died shortly afterwards. See more »
