"Unfinished Piece for
the Player Piano"
Directed by Nikita Mikhalkov
Winner of the Golden
Seashell at the San Sebastian International Film Festival, this is a bittersweet, humorous
tapestry of human folly and lost dreams, loosely based on Chekhov's play Platonov.
Mikhail Platonov meets his old girlfriend, now married to another, causing all his
passions and emotions to rise to the surface. The leisurely pace of the film belies the
intensity of the emotional content underneath. With Alexander Kalyagin, Yelena Solovieva
and Yevgey Glushenko. Russian with English subtitles.
