An unsure young man, he is now an agent of the established order, yet he looks on complacently when a stout woman steals some candy.

Turnaround : a memoir by Miloš Forman( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Hair. Ragtime. Amadeus. Valmont. Two of these films earned Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Picture. All display a distinctive combination of intelligence and artistry born of the vision of one man: Milos Forman." "Milos Forman's uncommon childhood left him orphaned by World War II in a small Czechoslovakian town. Eight years old when his father was seized by the Gestapo, ten when his mother was arrested, Forman spent his next thirty years living out of a suitcase and nurturing a dream to make movies." "As a teenager, he made his way to Prague, where he began his apprenticeship among drunken filmmakers and humorless state-controlled film czars, but most significantly with brilliant mentors such as Alfred Radok, the legendary Czech director. In this frustrating and often surreal Communist state, Forman cultivated youthful friendships with the likes of Vaclav Havel, Milan Kundera, and Ivan Passer, and through sheer force of will he made his dream come true, virtually inventing the Czech New Wave with such films as Black Peter, Loves of a Blonde, and Fireman's Ball." "But it wasn't until Forman emigrated to New York that he was able to realize the full range of his talents. First with Taking Off, and then working with the likes of Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher, and Danny De Vito in the Academy Award-winning One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Forman found enough peace to unpack his suitcase at last."
