PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama
Paul is an actor who feels bogged down by his participation in a production of Chekov's play, Vanya.
The script composition include associations and intentions from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's "Faust", "Dead Souls"by Nikolai Gogol, "The hands of Orlac" by Maurice Renard and Hans Christian Andersen's "The Princess and the Pea".
Believe me, when you get rid of your soul everything makes so much more sense. Everything becomes, well, functional, and purposeful.
Dmitri tells the actress not to worry that Paul's soul looks like and is the size of a chickpea, telling her that Al Pacino won three Oscars. Al Pacino has actually only won one Oscar (Best Actor in 1992, Scent of a Woman).
