Nikita Mikhalkov's obliquely titled An Unfinished Piece for Player Piano is a magnificent film, a marvelous, transcendent and totally fulfilling viewing experience.
"An Unfinished Piece for Player Piano" is buoyed by a cast that is uniformly excellent...
The film, only very loosely based on the early Chekhov play Platonov, is perhaps even closer to Chekhov than Chekhov was.
Mikhalkov's version of Chekhov's first play, Platonov, has a lyrical naturalism that Chekhov would have loved.
The relentlessly pretty cinematography suggests an urge for precious self-deception on Mikhalkov's part as strong as any of his characters'.
Loosely basing his saga on on Chekhov's first play Platonov (written in 1881 but published in 1923), Mikhalkov has made a humorous, bittersweet tale of human folly and lost dreams.
