Autumn Marathon

This Russian movie is almost a quarter century old, tells the story of a middle aged professor and his relationships with two women, namely his wife and his girl friend.

It is interesting to know how people lived in Russia in the late seventies and the early eighties, which was also the time I used to read much about Russia thanks to subsidized subscriptions of Russian children's magazines. The movie reiterates the fact that man-woman relationships are pretty much the same, whether they are behind the Cold War's Iron curtain or in the free world.
