An Unfinished Piece for the Player Piano (Russian) [DVD]
A highly-praised adaptation of Anton Chekhov's play, 'Platonov', in which a village teacher undergoes an emotional crisis that also torments his young wife. Meanwhile, a local doctor hates his work and takes out his frustration on his patients. When all these characters arrive for a weekend in the country as guests of a general's widow, the curtain of manners and feigned pleasantries is soon drawn aside to reveal each person's moral bankruptcy. An excellent cast, subtle camerawork and a beautiful setting make for a captivating drama for lovers of Russian classics. Music by Donizetti, Liszt and Rachmaninov.
