Outdated and Unmoving Film

Although the film deals with one of the best known Russian literature writers, the film itself fails on most accounts, namely because it does not deal with the tendency for times to change, with the expulsion of communist Russia, this film no longer has any prominent themes to explore and on top of that, it was done by an Italian filmed on the streets of Belgrade. It is very boring at times with unmotivated and stiff acting by most of the leagues and it is a period piece. The ending was the only thing redeeming about it and I would just rate it as an average piece of work.....
