Cherry Orchard

Ringers Charlotte Rampling and Alan Bates headline the cast of this odd Greek/French production of the classic play by Anton Chekhov. The costume drama plot features a penniless aristocrat returing to her family's country estate to ponder the sad decline of Russia's ruling class. Director Michael Cacoyannis did the immortal Zorba the Greek 40 years ago and he remains highly respectful of Chekhov's original. The unfortunate side-effect is that the film feels somehow sterile, despite the best efforts of the top-notch cast. 137 minutes
