In 1974, Popov was invited to join the Moscow Art Theatre. There he co-starred in several stage productions together with such partners as Smoktunovsky, Efremov, Tabakov, and other stars of Russian theatre. He appeared in more than 40 films between 1947 and 1981.

En juillet 1942, devant l'offensive allemande, le 38e régiment d'artillerie se replie vers Stalingrad. Épuisés par une marche de trente kilomètres faite dans la matinée, la troupe arrive dans un petit village situé sur la rive droite du Don. Elle s'y arrête et les soldats en profitent pour se refaire, boire, manger, fumer, discuter, se confier, dormir, se baigner, réparer du matériel, aller à la pêche aux écrevisses,... et pour Pétia c'est aussi découvrir la gent féminine locale et au passage encaisser les critiques très sévères d'une vieille paysanne qui les prend pour de lâches fuyards.

En compagnie de la jeune femme, le lieutenant Kierżencew fait une promenade le long de la Volga, ils passent près du kourgane Mamaïev. Lucia voit Kierżencew comme quelqu'un de renfermé, peu causant et pragmatique.

Directed by Nikita Mikhalkov
Actors Oleg Tabakov, Elena Solovei, Iouri Bogatyriov, Gleb Strizhenov, Andrei Popov

The film begins in 19th century Saint Petersburg, and examines the life of Ilya Ilyich Oblomov, a middle-aged Russian nobleman. Slothful and seemingly unhappy, Oblomov spends much of the beginning of the film sleeping and being attended to by his servant, Zakhar. In an attempt to get him more active, Andrei Ivanovich Stoltz, a Russian/German businessman and close friend, frequently takes Oblomov along with him to social events. Oblomov is introduced to a cultured woman named Olga, a friend of Stoltz. When Stoltz leaves the country, Olga is left with the task of civilizing and culturing Oblomov while he lives nearby. Olga and Oblomov eventually fall in love, but upon Stoltz's return, Oblomov moves back into town, eventually severing ties with Olga. Stoltz and Olga eventually marry, and Oblomov subsequently marries the woman with whom he was living, Agafya Matveyevna Psehnitsyna. The two have a son, and although Agafya has two children from a previous relationship, Oblomov treats them both as if they were his own. Oblomov is satisfied with his life, although it "lack[s] the poetic and those bright rays which he imagined were to be found.
