In the last years of his life Vladislav Galkin was actively engaged in filming, but misfortunes befell the actor one after another. Disagreement in family life was followed by divorce. A nervous breakdown, which led to a rowdy scene in a bar, affected a public agent and the actor ended up with 14 months of conditional sentence and a year and a half of probation period...
