Deeply atmospheric and beautifully shot, Emil Lotyanu's very popular adaptation of this Chekhov novel takes place in the 19th century countryside in Russia and tells a story of crime and passion. Beautiful but poor young Olga is forced to marry an elderly prince Urbenin whose wealth and passionate love she enjoys. But Olga's heart is stolen by detective Sergey Kamishev, a younger friend of her husband. Torn between love and money, Olga promises her heart to Sergey but than bounces back to the older husband. A top Soviet-era production, A Hunting Accident depicts Russian aristocracy in its most decadent glamour through passion, obsession and jealousy. A stellar performance of Seregy, the tender beast of the Chekhov's title, by the late Tarkovsky star Oleg Yankovsky is a joy to behold. Music by Evgeniy Doga adds to the film's unforgettable atmosphere.

We, by which I mean some of my classmates and I, knew about Paula Rego. I’ll have to admit, I didn’t know where Rego was from or even where in Europe Portugal was. I thought she was English. Let me tell you how I first heard the very un-English sounding name “Paula Rego”

Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
