Trivia

This film is based on Vladimir Nabokov's first novel "Mashen'ka", which was written in Russian and published in 1926 when Nabokov was living in Berlin. "Mashen'ka" contained autobiographical descriptions of his first serious romance and of the family estate (also described in the autobiography "Speak, Memory"). "Mashen'ka" was also derived from his earlier, abandoned novel "Happiness". See more »

better than novel
2 May 2003 | by (Charlottesville, VA) – See all my reviews

It is about a young man escaping from revolutionary Russia, leaving his memory of the beautiful country together with the memory of his first love. It questions the meaning of love: what is it that one wants when a person is in love? What is it for?

This film is better than the original novel by Nabokov. (But take it into account that I saw the movie first, then read the novel. At least the movie was beautiful enough to make me read the book.) I do not understand why such a good movie, (and very accessible to anyone) is not available in video or DVD in USA.

The only drawback of the movie is that everybody in Russia and Germany (where the story takes place) is speaking English.
