The Lady With the Dog

Loading...
A man and a woman, both in loveless marriages, meet on vacation and begin an affair, but when they find each other later in Moscow they must decide whether or not to continue their relationship.; "A faithful adaptation from the short story by Chekhov, Lady with the dog is a forgotten masterpiece of the Soviet cinema. Told with little dialogue and minimal action, this romantic drama is a bittersweet portrait of a doomed love affair between Dmitri, a bank official, and Anna, a well-to-do young woman. The two fall in love while on vacation in Yalta, but because each is married to someone else, they can see each other only once a year."--Container.
