This movie is a faithfully adaptation of the seagull of Cechov,direct by a very good director and played by fine actors. The only problem, for me, is that no one suited the character and no one really played it in an appropriate manner. perhaps since they were actually famous, the just play the drama in a way to show how skilled,intense and sexy actors they are and scarcely bored in rendering the spirit of the work of Cechov. If you are interesting to saw an Italian version of a play from A.Cechov better to stick with a more classic versions,I would suggest the Seagull directed by Orazio Costa or the classic The Cherry Orchard by Giorgio Strehler, both available on the tube.
