Draggy staging lends a heavy air to already weighty play. Decent enough performances from the leads, who are a little too old for their parts, but the acting honors go to Lee Grant for a sharp portrait of a shallow, somewhat oblivious woman.
Despite the cast this was not a very good performance of Chekhov's play. I was somewhat disappointed in this 1975 production. Seemed to be quite a bit of over-acting here. It's hard to bring theater to the screen because emotions and even movements for the stage are much larger and exaggerated than when you are bringing it to film and that was not taken for account here.
very, very good. great performances. especially kevin mccarthy. he made the character so interesting. i really loved frank langella in the first half.. but later he over-acted quite a bit. his more subtle moments were very good though. the other performances were also great. the camera work was horrible, hahahhaha. probably the worst quality of anything i've seen. but. the acting was really superb!
