AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER IN THE FILMS OF NIKITA MIKHALKOV BOXSET BEGINNING 8/24/10
Five Evenings is Nikita Mikhalkov's brilliantly cinematic and achingly poignant mounting of Alexander Volodin's comedy-drama stage masterpiece.
During a brief visit to late 50's Moscow, Alexander rings the bell at a threshold he hasn't crossed since before the war. Wistful nostalgia collides with kitchen-sink reality when Tamara (Lyudmila Gurchenko, Siberiade), the dawning love Alexander left behind 17 years before, answers the door. Reunited within a brilliantly recreated Khruschev-era communal apartment, the couple struggles to rekindle a still gestating romance with neither the mature bond of trust nor the blind hope of youth to guide them. The ensuing quintet of days and nights before Alexander must return to his life in the Soviet provinces lifts successive veils of self-deception and pain, separating past from present and longing from love.
Conceived, adapted, and rehearsed while Mikhalkov was simultaneously making the costume drama Oblomov and shot in a mere 25 days during a scheduled lull in production, Five Evenings is a valedictory and heartfelt celebration of the risks and rewards of second chances.
