Based on one of Chekhov's loveliest, most wistful stories, this tale of a holiday affair begins as Moscow banker Dmitry Gurov (the wonderful Alexei Batalov) spies a beautiful young woman, Anna, (Iya Sawina), walking her dog in early 1900s Yalta. Each it turns out is caught in a problematic marriage, yet each is reluctant to embark on an adventure that could turn their carefully controlled worlds upside down. After their summer holidays, both return home, but then a chance appears for Dmitry to make a trip to Anna's home town. Was what they experienced a passing fancy-or a chance for more fulfilled lives? Khefitz creates a rich period portrait as well as a brilliant study of passion deferred, making his star-crossed couple complex, vital characters as well as representatives of their particular era.
