I've recently noticed that former World Champ - Anatoly Karpov feature in a movie call - Zugzwang from 1989.
In that movie, there was a short scene where Karpov played against a man (actor name - Mathieu Carrière) who is interested to go to Russia for reason that i'm not interested to know :)
What really bother me as a chess player is how on earth that the former World Champ miss a quicker checkmate!?

Karpov did come to Malaysia twice, his first visit here is in 1990 when he played a World Candidate Final match against Jan Timman in Kuala Lumpur.
