Milos Forman's death has triggered homage to the iconic two-time Oscar winning director from the film community in many parts of the world.
Tribute to the Czech-born filmmaker who won the Oscar Awards for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" 1975 and "Amadeus" 1984, began to run on social media shortly after the death of the presidency Friday was revealed by his Mrs Martina.
Former Cannes president Gilles Jacob described Foreman as the only director who went from the Czech New Wave ("Black Peter") to major American films that won the Oscars flurry ("Amadeus"). Incredible workpiece. He loved beer, tennis, Cannes, he spoke the truth, that's all. Milos will remain dear in my heart, "Jacob tweeted in French."
Actor Antonio Banderas also praised Forman. "Milos Forman has left us. British film writer Edgar Wright ("Baby Driver") said that Forman had left "a huge filmography that documented the heart and human spirit of the uprising."
