A Slave of Love

Set in 1918, Nikita Mikhalkov's Russian comedy takes place amid the ruins of the prerevolutionary silent cinema, as a group of actors and technicians labor to bring forth a conventional melodrama (titled A Slave of Love) that's becoming obsolete even as they work. The film, which introduced American audiences to a new, freer style in Soviet cinema, has a gentle, bittersweet quality occasionally reminiscent of Lubitsch. Elena Solovei and Rodion Nakhapetov star, and well (1976).
