Storyline

In the Nineteenth Century, at the seaside resort of Yalta, the upper class Dimitri Gurov from Moscow meets Anna Sergeyovna walking with her little dog. Both have unhappy marriages: Dimitri has a marriage of convenience arranged by the family when he was a college boy and Anna married a lackey for love that has gone, and they have a love affair. When Anna returns to Saratov and Dimitri to Moscow, he has a boring life at home, spending his time working and going to the club after hours alone to drink and play cards with his friends. On Christmas, Dimitri misses Anna and lies to his wife, telling that he has a business trip to Saint Petersburg. However, he heads to Saratov and he meets Anna in the Opera House with her husband. Their love kindles and Anna promises to meet him in Moscow. In a period when divorce would be unthinkable, Anna and Dimitri are doomed to meet each other in hotel rooms. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This Movie was by far the greatest Russian Movie I have ever seen. I have been awake for over 72 hours rewatching the movie over and over in the hopes of finding all the greater meanings. My wife has been watching this movie with me as well and this has really spiced up our relationship. If you are also a true fan i would highly recommend watching this movie in reverse because it causes your view to change about all the characters in the movie. If you are looking for a movie that will make you laugh, Cry, and scream this is the movie for you.

(P.s. the Grey Fence in the movie is very cheaply made you can see the metal support beams sticking from the sides)
