Who is Valery Todorovsky?

Valery Petrovich Todorovsky is a Russian film director, screenwriter, TV producer of Jewish origin.

Legend has it that Todorovsky was born immediately after his mother watched Hitchcock's Psycho, in 1962. The film did not have an official release in Odessa; rather, it somehow reached Odessa Film Studio, where his father, Piotr Todorovsky, also a film director, was working at the time.

Among the films he directed is the crime melodrama set in Moscow, The Country of Deaf, scripted by actress-director-scriptwriter Renata Litvinova based on her own novella To Have and to Belong, and Hipsters. The Country of Deaf was entered into the 48th Berlin International Film Festival.

Of his earlier films, The Hearse won the Grand Prix at Mannheim and Love received Ecumenical Prize at Cannes. In 1999 he was a member of the jury at the 21st Moscow International Film Festival.

Valery Todorovsky also co-produced the Russian gangster TV series Brigada and the 2005 TV adaptation of the Master and Margarita.
