Directed by Andrei Konchalovsky
Nastassja Kinski (Cat People), John Savage (The Deer Hunter), John Goodman (Barton Fink), Robert Mitchum (The Yakuza) and Keith Carradine (The Long Riders) star in this war-torn love story that breaks the eroticism barrier with an astonishing directness. When her teenage sweetheart Ivan (Savage) returns home from WWII, Maria (Kinski) eagerly accepts his marriage proposal, looking forward to a lifetime of happiness. But her joy is short-lived when Ivan’s dark past shrouds their wedding night in misery, driving a wedge between them that neither knows how to remove. Confused and depressed, Maria attempts to mend her true love’s heart despite the advances of other suitors. But when a traveling musician (Carradine) hits the right note, Maria struggles to justify her unfulfilling life. Is her passion too powerful to be contained within the sanctity of marriage? Kinski gives a radiant performance in this compelling and provocative drama from renowned director Andrei Konchalovsky (Siberiade, Runaway Train).
