The final film by French director René Féret (1945-2015) is a personal tribute to the great Russian writer Anton Chekhov (1860-1904)
28 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Any film about one of world's greatest writers deserves to be respected. Anton Chekhov 1890 is one good example of such a film which does more than merely entertain people. French director René Féret has made many good films using his own artistic as well as financial resources but he would be remembered for a long time for this film. By making a film about one of world's most loved writers- Anton Chekhov-French director René Féret has shown his indebtedness towards the great Russian writer. The fact that the leading actor Nicolas Giraud looks like Anton Chekhov is to be viewed as one major casting coup. A viewer can't take eyes off his face. Watching him play the main role, one can compare the performance with those of British actor Ben Kingsley in Richard Attenborough's 'Gandhi'. This film boasts of an amazing eye for detail as far as costumes and sets are concerned. The humanitarian aspects of Anton Chekhov's brief yet illustrious life are presented through numerous minor incidents which took place in his life. This film is successful in revealing that Anton Chekhov was much more than a famous, talented, rich writer. He reflected goodness in human beings by being a rare writer who didn't hesitate even for a second to prefer simple life as a doctor over the comforts of being a famous, rich writer.
