Movie Info

Russian director Nikita Mikhalkov takes a break from emulating his beloved Chekhov to film the classic Ivan Goncharov novel Oblomov. The title character (played by Oleg Tabakov) is a 19th century Russian civil servant and landlord who chooses to go to bed one day--and never get up. Preferring to sleep his way through life rather than confront it, Oblomov is shaken from his slumbers by the arrival of a childhood friend Shtoltz. A series of flashbacks show why it is that this friend's presence gets Oblomov out of his 'jammies and back on his feet. Also known as A Few Days in the Life of I. I. Oblomov, this sprightly film is an excellent early example of the work of the director who would win a 1994 Oscar for his Burnt by the Sun. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Neskolko dney iz zhizni I.I. Oblomova (Oblomov)

You have to tolerate 1 hour of the movie (kind of) and then movie becomes awesome. Background score (original Music : Casta Diva(19th century) by Vincenzo Bellini) is perfect.

An interesting look at the meaning of life. While set in the 19th century (based on the book by Ivan Goncharov) it is still very relevant today. Is life to be just enjoyed or is it about constantly striving to achieve status and accumulating materialistic possessions? The only negative for me was the length. It is a typical European movie (and I'm speaking as a European). Way too drawn out. It did not have to be 2 and a half hours long.
