Forman once said his friends had discouraged him from going anywhere near the script based on Ken Kesey's novel, which they deemed too American for a fresh immigrant.
He was 86 years old, according to Dennis Aspland, Forman's representative. The CTK news agency quoted his wife Martina as saying Forman, who lived in the United States, died suddenly on Friday after a short illness.
Forman, who was born in the small town of Caslav in 1932, moved to U.S.in the 1960s and became widely known for his humanism, dark humor, and fascination with rebellious characters. The film picked up eight Oscars, including Forman's second for Best Director and another Best Picture.

Never prolific, Forman's output slowed even more after "Amadeus", and his three subsequent films were disappointments. He left his second wife, singer Vera Kresadlova, behind with the couple's twin sons when he left Czechoslovakia.
That marriage ended in 1999, and Forman married Zborilova.
