Arguably the great Chekhov adaptation, this film has influenced theatre directors and Chekhov productions all over the world since its release.  A classic iteration of the story of how a retired professor and his much younger wife Elena, wreak havoc on a visit to their country estate.  With a host of great Russian actors in the key roles, including Innokenty Smoktunovsky as Uncle Vanya and Sergei Bondarchuk as Astrov it is a heartbreaking take on a world that disappeared.
