Abroad, he is famous for his acclaimed 2002 film The Cuckoo (Kukushka), which won the Golden Eagle Award for Best Picture. The film was also entered into the 24th Moscow International Film Festival where he won the award for Best Director.
He also directed a series of popular Russian-language screwball comedies "Peculiarities of National...": Peculiarities of National Hunt (1995), Peculiarities of National Fishing (1998), Peculiarities of National Hunt in Winter Season (2000), and Peculiarities of National Politics (2003). These and the one in a similar vein, Operation Happy New Year, are basically lots of vodka and the related adventures and stunts.
Rogozhkin's latest film, Transit (Peregon), was released in 2006. It is a "wartime tragicomedy" about the relationship between Soviet soldiers in the Far Eastern outpost in Chukotka and the American female pilots who bring them U.S.-made airplanes from Alaska through the lend-lease program. As in The Cuckoo, Rogozhkin cast a number of amateur actors for Peregon.
