Evoking the tenor of an Anton Chekhov comic tragedy (from whose works, including the unfinished play Platonov, the original screenplay for the film was inspired), An Unfinished Piece for the Player Piano is an understated, elegant, and compassionate articulation of personal disappointment, emotional resignation, and regret. Early in the 20th century, family and friends gather at the country estate of a general's widow, Anna Petrovna. Sofia, the new wife of Anna's step-son, recognizes Misha (Alexander Kalyagin), the brother-in-law of one of the widow's admirers: a few years earlier, they had been idealistic lovers and now she can't believe he has settled for a dim wife and a job as a teacher. Amidst parlor games and idle talk of women's rights and peasants' capabilities, Sofia and Misha rekindle their love. Will they flaunt convention, abandon families, and run away to pursue lost dreams?
The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.
