| Absolutely brilliant
A rare gem penalized by distribution in the Seventies but rightly praised by most critics today. Bellocchio gives a very personal rendition of Cechov' s drama and thanks to Agosti's editing and great cast performances reaches outstanding results. Laura Betti's character is different fron the original one but so powerful to steal the scene. Remo Girone is perfect in his role and pierces the screen. Pamela Villoresi, Giulio Brogi and the rest of the cast are very good too. Also, I have to praise the choice of locations, Casale sul Sile near Treviso, a very lucky invention that added to the film a unique atmosphere, like Nicola Piovani's musical score. Not just a meditation about art, as you may read sometimes, but on human condition, love and meaning of life.
