  • Milos Forman Dies At 86: Celebrities, Fans React To 'Amadeus' Director's Death

At his lowest point he was offered the chance to direct One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, another anti-authoritarian parable adapted from Ken Kesey's novel.

Forman's other English-language films included 1996's The People vs Larry Flynt, which earned him his third best director Oscar nomination, and 1999's Man on the Moon.

He died on Friday in the United States after a short illness, Martina told Czech news agency CTK. "He passed away quietly, surrounded by his family and his closest people", she said. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, adapted from Ken Kesey's 1962 novel, dealt with life inside an OR mental institution.

In 1968 Milos fled Europe and settled down in the U.S. where he became an American citizen.

After a few years, Forman came in the USA and started making movies in Hollywood.

The Fireman's Ball was released in 1967 and Forman was then invited to the USA by Paramount Pictures to make a film in America.

The 1965 film is a bittersweet coming-of-age story that sold out in his home country before it was nominated for both an Oscar and a Golden Globe.

"A director is little bit of everything, little bit of the writer, little bit of an actor, little bit of an editor, little bit of a costume designer", Forman once said.

"Man on the Moon", based on the life of cult hero Andy Kaufman, did win its star, Jim Carrey, a Golden Globe.

Never prolific, Forman's output slowed even more after "Amadeus", and his three subsequent films were disappointments.

Forman's first wife was actress Jana Brejchova.
