THE BROTHERS CH

Director - Mikhail Ugarov, Scriptwriter - Elena Gremina

The film is based on the motifs of the play of the same title. The script uses letters of Anton Chekhov and Alexander Chekhov, Alexander and Mikhail Chekhov's memoirs, Pavel Chekhov's diary, and also themes from Anton Chekhov's works "Ivanov", "Uncle Vanya", "The Seagull", "Three Years", "My Life", "A Joke", "The Duel". The film's plot is the story of success, the story of how a man, world famous writer Anton Chekhov, managed to break off with the family and find himself, his vocation. Chekhov is the master of description of unsuccessful families. The family he was born in and where he grew up seems to step down from the pages of his later stories. The family relationship were always painful, although the family members loved each other very much. The film will tell how Anton Chekhov faced his crucial choice - whether to devote himself totally to the family and to burry his outstanding gift as a writer; whether to take the responsibility for his relatives upon himself while he was constantly dreaming to quit all this or to get out of the family troubles and live his own way.
