The author of this unique art project, Nikita Mikhalkov, presents to the viewers the works of his favorite 19th-century painters. We shall see a whole panorama of artistic trends and tastes of the period, learn about amazing life stories of the painters and their subjects, the history of creation of the masterpieces of Russian painting, and get a broad picture of Russian culture, particularly the culture of painting. Thanks to a deeply personal, involved presentation of the material, a lively, ingenuous intonation, the paintings of the talented Russian artists will come so close to us that we’ll be able to hear “the music of Russian painting” and understand what perhaps was hidden due to our, sometimes superficial, momentary perception. And, as a result, get a gratifying sense of association with the unique heritage of our great country and the proud feeling of being part of its great people and history.

A dacha is a summer home for Russians, away from the hurly-burly of the city, and can be as primitive as a cabin or as elaborate as a palace. A much-favored place for gatherings of intellectuals, dachas are a favored literary setting. In this film, adapted by Nikita Mikhailkov from Anton Chekhov's first play and some of his other works, the schoolteacher Platonov (Alexander Kalyagin) has come with his wife to spend a summer weekend at a friend's dacha. Among the other guests there, he meets his former lady-love Sophia (Elena Solovei), who is now married to another. Even though he thought he had recovered from his disappointed affection for her, he finds that this is not so for at least two reasons. First, she only recently got married; secondly, she is married to an idiot. Nostalgia spurs them to investigate their affection for one another, but eventually, as they remember their stations in life, their old love does not seem so important.

This absorbing movie is from beginning to end, no more than a dialogue that happens between a now-divorced couple when the ex-husband visits his former wife in her two-room apartment, intending to destroy her pending marriage to a colleague who has control over him and his career. Apparently the husband has always done whatever he could to further his own advancement, even at the expense of family and friends. Tension mounts as he tries to manipulate his ex-wife by any means possible. These scenes were shot over a seven-week period of stage rehearsals for a play that finally did not open, so the filmed play was released as this movie. First shown at the Moscow Film Festival in 1983, it shared the FIPRESCI (International Association of Film Journalists) Critics' Prize.

Based on the play by Alexander Volodin. The set is the 1950s. The tangible world of an old communal apartment is recreated onscreen with an incredible accuracy, every thing capturing the flair of the time. The stylized visuals, the curious objects, the amusing inhabitants, so charming and exotic… There are all the marks of the ‘retro’ style, which is always ‘in’. The actors Ludmila Gurchenko and Stanislav Lyubshin succeeded in conveying everything that they couldn’t say openly. The finale allows for different interpretations. Hence the emotions evoked by this impeccably made melodrama appear to be even more poignant.Once Alexander and Tamara were in love. But the war had separated them… Twenty long years after, they meet again, but they lack the courage to admit that their feelings are still alive. Unable to overcome their pride, they try to convince each other that both are doing just fine…
