Description: Nikita Mikhalkov examines the plight of the filmmaker operating in an uncertain political climate in his irony-laden seriocomedy Slave of Love. The time is 1918, at the height of the Bolshevik revolution. A small group of filmmakers are hurriedly trying to complete a silent melodrama while the world changes all around them. As production progresses, leading lady Elena Solovei metamorphoses from self-centered movie star to committed revolutionary. Normally described as Chekhovian, director Mikhalkov borrows a few pages from Pirandello. With Slave of Love he gained his first serious international attention.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
