"The Cherry Orchard"
Directed by Michael Cacoyannis
Ckekhov's masterful play about a Russian family's decaying aristocratic
status comes to the screen through the tasteful direction of Michael
Cacoyannis (Zorba the Greek, Stella). Charlotte Rampling and Alan
Bates head a fine cast, which includes Katrin Cartlidge and Michael Gough.
"...essential viewing for lovers of Chekhov...a stark reflection of the way
history has shaped the character of the Russian people" (Stephen Holden,
New York Times). In English. 137 minutes.
