homage
19 February 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it is a beautiful and inspired homage. to the work of Anton Tchekhov. to the art of Rene Feret.two virtues define it - the grace to explore a biography as puzzle of small pieces defining the interior universe of a great writer and the delicacy to recreate the atmosphere of XIX century Russia. but the best thing is the authenticity. a form of accuracy of facts, dialogues, gestures who has the precious advantage to preserve and mix the influences of French and Russian biographic film. because it is a film who gives to you Tchekhov in admirable manner. the words of his short stories, the levels of life, the question of love and relation with family, Sahalin episode and the play writer are presented with precise science of define the details as bricks of solid building. and this does Anton Chekhov 1890 almost an experience for the viewer because it is more than recreation of a biography. it is an homage to a man and his time and beautiful remind of the force of a fight for universal basic values.
