Here's the place to talk about DVDs (or VHS) films and movies you have seen on television and recommend or don't recommend. Discuss actors and scores, too.

This subtle movie about a grandmother visiting her Army officer son in Chechnya may be worth 90 minutes of your time (I caught it as a Netflix on-demand). But the reason I am mentioning it here is that I watched the whole thing as is my custom before going to the IMDb write-up, and it was only there that it registered with me that I had been watching a marvelous non-singing performance by a very matronly Galina Vishnevskaya.
There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

How on earth could you possibly not know that...unless you have never heard their Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk...lennygoran wrote:>Galina Vishnevskaya.<
I had heard of her but didn't know this: "Vishnevskaya was married to the cellist Mstislav Rostropovich from 1955 until his death in 2007." Regards, Len
Oh, wait, you never heard a Maria Callas Recording, either...hmmm...
