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.

Top Critic

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'.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

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.
