Summary, etc.:
A deceptively simple tale: Dmitry Gurov, a comfortable, middle-aged husband, father and womanizer, has a casual affair with Anna Sergeyevna, an unhappy young wife, while vacationing in Yalta; to his amazement, the jaded Gurov falls in love for the first time in his life, just as Anna does with him.. Kama Ginkas has made a career of creating powerful theater based on the prose of classic Russian authors, including Fyoor Dostoevsky, Alexander Pushkin and Chekhov. His famous Chekhov trilogý Lady with a Lapdog, The Black Monk and Rothschild́s Fiddléemerged as one of the most celebrated achievements in Russian theatre in the 1990s and 2000s.. Ginkaśs dramatizationśalthough they rarely change anything in the original text́are never examples of narrative literary theater. By breaking up the text and distributing it among actors in unexpected ways; by translating description into dynamic action; and by bringing out concealed character motivations in performance, Ginkas reveals the highly dramatic nature of non-dramatic work.. Golden Mask Awards for Best Performance (2003), Best Director (Kama Ginkas)
