Marcello Mastroianni received a well-deserved Oscar nomination (his third) for playing an aging womanizer in Nikita Mikhalkov's charming fable based on Chekhov's stories.

A fine performance by Mastroianni

Lawrence Journal-World

Has the ambiguity of a dream that gently reflects on the different shades of love.

Audience Reviews for Dark Eyes (Oci Ciornie)

½

Based on Anton Chekhov's stories. Lavish parade of eccentricities and poetry that seem to convey different stages of love. Wildly funny, but also heartbreaking. Phenomenal Mastroianni, as always.
