Dostal Nikolai Nikolaevich is a multifaceted personality: he is an actor, screenwriter, and director in one guise. The Soviet and Russian filmmaker is the winner of many film festivals and prestigious awards. What popular films did the director make? And what is remarkable about his biography?
Dostal Nikolai Nikolaevich: photo, life story
Nikolai Nikolaevich Dostal was born in 1946 in May. He is a native Muscovite and the son of Nikolai Dostal Sr. (a famous Soviet director).
Russian, Czech and Persian blood flows in the veins of Nikolai Nikolaevich. The mother of the future director died a few months after his birth. Dostal Sr. remarried hereditary Princess Natalia Iskander.
Unfortunately, Dostal Jr. lost his father at the age of 13: he died on the set of his own film "It all starts with the road." In this tape, Natalya Krachkovskaya and Alexander Demyanenko began their careers. After the death of Dostal Sr., the film ended shootinghis friend Villen Azarov. Under the care of Natalia Iskander were the underage sons of the Soviet director - Vladimir Dostal and Dostal Nikolay Nikolayevich.
The biography of the latter could well have turned out differently and had nothing to do with the film industry. The fact is that in the 70s, Dostal Jr. planned to connect his life with the media sphere, so he entered the Moscow State University, on a journalism course. But then Nikolai nevertheless decided to continue the work of his father and retrained as a screenwriter and director, having completed the appropriate courses at the Mosfilm film concern.
The aspiring director released his first film in 1981. It was called Cold and Snow Awaited. Andrey Myagkov played the main role in the film.
Dostal Nikolai Nikolaevich: filmography
The director's filmography includes more than 20 films. And every film is like a child for him. It is impossible to name and single out any of them as the most beloved, says Nikolay Dostal.
The first serious work of Dostal Jr. can be called the picture "Cloud Paradise", which was filmed in 1990 at the Mosfilm studio.
Dostal Nikolai Nikolayevich this time entrusted the writing of the script to Georgy Nikolaev, who also worked on screenplays for the films The Art of Living in Odessa and The Musketeers Twenty Years Later.
The plot of the tragicomedy "Cloud-Paradise" revolves around the loafer Kolka, who one fine day, out of boredom, decided to attract attention and told his neighbors that he was going to conquer the FarEast. The news of the heroic deed of Nicholas quickly spread throughout the small town. For the first time, Kolya enjoyed such popularity. The young man enthusiastically played his part, until it came to the point that the neighbors forced the poor fellow to sell all the furniture, quit his job and put him on the bus. This is how the bluster ended for the main character of the film.
In the cast of the project you can see such stars as Sergei Batalov ("Shirley Myrli"), Irina Rozanova ("Furtseva") and Lev Borisov ("Dragon Syndrome").
In the 90s Dostal Nikolai Nikolayevich continued to make films, but these were very dubious paintings in terms of artistic value. In the 2000s, the director switched to the most popular genre of the series at that time, as a result, the detective story Citizen Chief appeared.
The multi-part film was broadcast on the TV-6 channel, 3 seasons were filmed.
The main roles in the project went to Yuri Stepanov ("Penal Battalion") and Yegor Beroev ("Turkish Gambit").
The plot of the whole action is simple: one principal investigator is trying to resist the whole criminal structure that has enveloped the regional center city. The protagonist has few assistants. And yet he manages to pass all the dangers and achieve his goal.
In 2002, Dostal Nikolai Nikolaevich began work on the series "Stiletto". And again we have a story about a superhero - a former intelligence officer who is involved in a criminal showdown.
Ignat Voronov leavesFSB to get a job as a security guard in a private company. However, a few days later his boss is killed, and his wife is kidnapped after some time. Ignat cannot stay away from what is happening, so he begins a personal investigation of all these incidents.

Dostal Nikolai Nikolaevich is the director of another famous series. We are talking about the serial film "Penal Battalion". The premiere of "Penal Battalion" took place in 2004. The script for the film was written by Eduard Volodarsky, who later worked on screenplays for the projects "Trickster" and "Grigory R.". The film was produced by Vladimir Dostal, the director's brother.
The film takes place at the beginning of the Great Patriotic War. Penal companies, that is, criminals and convicts, were sent to the front lines, into the thick of it, for the dirtiest work. But since in the 1930s In the USSR, everyone was indiscriminately sent to the camps, then among the penalized were not only the dregs of society, but also hereditary military, intelligentsia, writers and even artists. The picture tells how, with their blood and bones, they also paved the way to victory.
The main roles in the series were given to Alexei Serebryakov ("Fartsa"),Yuri Stepanov ("Citizen Chief") and Alexander Bashirov ("The Master and Margarita"). In addition, Maxim Drozd (“Liquidation”), Roman Madyanov (“Leviathan”) and Alexei Zharkov (“Children of Monday”) were involved in the frame.
