Critic Reviews for An Unfinished Piece for Mechanical Piano (Neokonchennaya pyesa dlya mekhanicheskogo pianino)

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

The film, only very loosely based on the early Chekhov play Platonov, is perhaps even closer to Chekhov than Chekhov was.

June 30, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Mikhalkov's version of Chekhov's first play, Platonov, has a lyrical naturalism that Chekhov would have loved.

Top Critic

The relentlessly pretty cinematography suggests an urge for precious self-deception on Mikhalkov's part as strong as any of his characters'.

April 4, 2011 | Full Review…

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.
