Nikita Mikhalkov directs and stars as Colonel S. Kotov, a hero of the Revolution, who is spending the summer in the country with his young daughter (Mikhalkov's real-life daughter), his wife and her eccentric family. But when his wife's childhood love suddenly appears, the idyllic summer day takes a surprising turn. A lyrical film filled with beauty and warmth, it is also an indelible account of a man dedicated to family and fatherland, cruelly destroyed by political paranoia.

This Russian cultural film (I watched the DVD version of this) is difficult to rate because the summary of the story on the DVD jacket cover seemed different than the film--it was more like a film about a Colonel S. Kotov shown in the film to be of dubious, and maybe sinister character in his personal relations, and then being done in by the Stalin's secret police for other reasons. The historic pre-1930 Russian scenery settings sometimes had some horror, and there were some surprises in this film. Not fast paced until near the end.
