The colourful characters, unique performances played, numerous shows created by Robert Hossein during his full stage and screen activities are brilliant examples of cinema and theatre.
Robert Hossein was a true friend of Azerbaijan. Proud of his Azerbaijani ancestry, Robert Hossein lived outside our country, but was deeply attached to his fatherland. That is why he has visited our country many times. He has always been highly respected and sympathized in Azerbaijan. I always remember our meetings and conversations with him with the best impressions.
The cherished memory of the unforgettable artist and sincere man Robert Hossein will always live in the hearts of those who know him”.
