American Film Theatre - Three Sisters


USA 1970, 162 minutes
Dir. Laurence Olivier

Topics: Educational Resource.


Aroview: Three sisters stuck in the Russian provinces pine for distant Moscow in this comprehensively faithful adaptation of Anton Chekhov's famous 19th century play.

Capturing the playwright's bittersweet perception of the compromises and hopes of life with conservative filming, dir. Olivier draws out several nuanced performances from his great cast. The subdued colours of Geoffrey Unsworth's photography are a visual delight.
