Films of Nikita Mikhalkov, Vol. 1

DVD (Black & White)

Overview

Nikita Mikhalkov (b. 1945), one of the most acclaimed Russian directors from the 1970s onward, gets renewed attention in this box set, which offers five Mihalkov titles produced between 1976 and 1994. It begins with the 1976 A Slave of Love, a drama set in pre-Revolution Russia, about a young woman wrapped up in a passionate romance while her husband is missing. The 1980 Oblomov constitutes an adaptation of Ivan Goncharov's beloved 1859 novel of the same title - with Oleg Tabakov as the absurdist title character, a disaffected aristocrat more eager to sleep than to contend with the forces of industrialization. 1983's Without Witness - one of the most scathing of Mikhalkov's films - dramatizes the verbal battle that erupts between a woman and her recently remarried ex-husband during a brief visit. The set also includes 1979's Five Evenings, a seriocomedy about a couple struggling to re-ignite a relationship in 1950s Moscow, after y ears apart. Finally, 1994's period chronicle Burnt by the Sun (that year's Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film) concerns a Soviet hero whose family gets victimized by Josef Stalin's secret police.
