Ralph Fiennes, Sylvie Testud and Aleksandr Baluev star in this Russian adaptation of Ivan Turgenev's play which had its UK premiere at our 2015 Chichester International Film Festival.
Married to a wealthy landowner, Natalya (Anna Vartanyan) laments losing her allure over the opposite sex as middle age approaches and finds herself increasingly jealous of her adopted daughter Vera (Anna Levanova)'s youthful beauty. The camera captures the period detail and the hazy summer beautifully and Ralph Fiennes is subtly splendid acting in Russian. (Subtitles)
