Event description: 

“Adapted and directed by Andrei Mikhalkov-Konchalovsky, this “Uncle Vanya” is an exceedingly graceful, beautifully acted production that manages to respect Chekhov as a man of his own time, as well as what I would assume to be the Soviet view of Chekhov as Russia’s saddest, gentlest, funniest and most compassionate revolutionary playwright.” - for the full review: https://www.nytimes.com/1972/05/19/archives/the-screen-a-graceful-uncle-…
