Fascinating, complex character study
30 April 2011 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Very interesting, well acted videotaped play, starring Dustin Hoffman in one of his earliest leading roles.

Hoffman has some great moments, though he occasionally goes over the top, but the whole cast of NY theater actors is top notch.

Hoffman plays a reader for a publishing company in 1890s Russia with grandiose dreams who is assigned to read the diary of a now dead nobleman, and their two very different tragic lives blend in Hoffman's character's head.

Deft and well handled and ultimately quite moving. A very interesting use of multiple time frames and fantasies. The quality of the videotape itself is a bit rough - understandable given the age - but this is well worth seeing.
