A Slave of Love
Time Out saysCrimea, 1917: a film crew shooting a silent melodrama while away a long summer in sub-Chekhovian languor. Gradually, intimations of distant revolution become intrusive. In true social-realist style, the idyll gives way to grainy realism, but the film is fatally undecided on whether to celebrate the glamour of a world with which it is more than half in love yet feels obliged to condemn.
