Synopsis

While the deep Russian soul is in many ways immeasurable and undefinable, there are still those who can show it. Watch this beautiful rendition of Uncle Vanya to bear witness to the brilliance of film director, Andrei Konchalovsky, writer, Anton Chekhov, as well as many of the greatest Russian actors, including Innokenty Smoktunovsky, Sergei Bondarchuk and Irina Kupchenko.

Part color, part black and white, this film creates a unique mood and atmosphere of the life of the nobility on a small estate. Alfred Schnittke’s music adds a second meaning to the picture and immerses the viewer in the drama of the nineteenth century. The story takes place in a small family estate: family members meet and discuss everyday issues, Russian laziness and hard life. They enjoy the Russian nature in silence, but at some point, things must fall apart.

The retired professor Serebryakov visits his country estate with his much younger, stunningly beautiful second wife, Yelena. There they interact with Sofya, Serebryakov’s daughter with his first wife, Vanya, Serebryakov’s first wife’s brother, and Astrov, a physician who drinks too much.  Things come to a head, though, when Serebryakov announces that he is selling the estate to buy a more lucrative property in Finland.
