Unfinished Piece for the Player Piano Synopsis

Early in the 20th century, family and friends gather at the country estate of a general's widow, Anna Petrovna. Sofia, the new wife of Anna's step-son, recognizes Misha, the brother-in-law of one of the widow's admirers: a few years before, they had been idealistic lovers and now she can't believe he has settled for a dim wife and a job as a teacher. Amidst parlor games and idle talk of women's rights and peasants' capabilities, Sofia and Misha rekindle their love. Will they flaunt convention, abandon families, and run away to pursue lost dreams? Rescue comes from an unexpected place.

Director Nikita Mikhalkov plays the role of Misha, one of the lead cast, in this film. And he sure is one very effective actor for truly conveying the emotions especially in the emotional and dramatic scenes. What I liked among the scenes was the one where he was holding a guitar and telling a story of a man left behind by his lover, who never came back for him. Everyone in the room was transfixed and lost in nostalgia. The final scene however was also endearing and even provides comedic relief. Countless scenic shots are worth noticing and  the rest of the cast were also commendable in their acting portrayals.

There is so much energy, vibrance and variety in the scenes of this movie.  The actuations of the actors are engaging to observe because there are so many contradictions in each of the characters portrayed in this film. Surprised to see Yelena Solovey in this film who portrays Sofia, I've seen her in another Russian film, Love and Lies, where she plays a teacher, and I admire her acting skills.
