Nikita Mikhalkov directs and stars as Colonel S. Kotov, a hero of the Revolution, who is spending the summer in the country with his young daughter (Mikhalkov's real-life daughter), his wife and her eccentric family. But when his wife's childhood love suddenly appears, the idyllic summer day takes a surprising turn. A lyrical film filled with beauty and warmth, it is also an indelible account of a man dedicated to family and fatherland, cruelly destroyed by political paranoia.

What a difference a day makes! Soviet Revolutionary hero Serguei Kotov's idyllic country life is interrupted when Dimitry Maroussia, former lover of Kotov's wife, appears. What is he doing there? Who sent him? Why? Russian with English subtitles

Pretty good, but suffers from an unevenness of tone. This movie constantly wavers between Chekhovian family study, broad satire, and political statement. But the main performances are absolutely top-notch, and when it "clicks" it's terrific, an elegy for a vanished way-of-life as well as a commentary on failed principles. The true standout performance however, belongs to the lead actor's daughter, playing the lead character's daughter. Perhaps it's because he's also the director that he managed to pull out one of the most astonishingly natural performances from a child that I have ever seen.

Summary

Add a Summary

Солнечный летний день 1936 года. Молодая страна, полная энтузиазма, празднует 4-ю годовщину сталинского дирижаблестроения. Легендарный комдив Котов и его большая шумная семья отдыхают на даче. В старом доме собралась тьма народу: жена-красавица, непоседа-дочь, тесть — известный русский дирижер, родственники и друзья, домработницы и соседи.

Веселье бьет через край, и мысль, что что-то в жизни может измениться, покажется всем абсурдом. Они все будут счастливы вечно! И никто, даже мудрый Котов, не хочет верить в неизбежное. В то, что этот солнечный день кончится — и не повторится уже никогда.
