“The Last Station” is a tender and beautiful story that revives Leo Tolstoy and his inviolable ideals that are displayed through the comparison of two love stories – old and new ones. The “old” story is the story of Leo Tolstoy and his vigorous wife, Countess Sofya Tolstoy. This sacred love union displays the idealism of these times.
To the opposite there is another couple, young and naïve Valentin, Tolstoy’s secretary, and lady with feminism in her blood, Tolstoy’s family friend named Masha.
The picture shows the last year of Leo Tolstoy’s life, it is a cinematized version of Jay Parini’s historical novel written from the records of Tolstoy’s diary. Of course, the story turned more artistic, as the genre requires adaptation for screen and wide audience. There was added such emotions and traits as love, prejudice, greed, sexuality, excellent humor and wisdom. The unique sense of this film is that all these emotions and features are shown from both opposite points. One is older, intelligent generation brought up on moral principles that can’t survive in modern society. The second one is shown in the relationship of young loving couple, free people with open mind and “new” principles.
The most of heroes are incredibly resemble their historical characters, and this became possible to the significant mastery of actors. Christopher Plummer perfectly got the feel of Tolstoy’s role, there is no any distinctions between existent portraits. The emotional side of this character was carefully studied from Tolstoy’s personal records, known biographies and various stories about Tolstoy family. The atmosphere of this film is the exact copy of writer’s epoch.
A wonderful and so much versatile relationship of Leo, Sofya and Vladimir Chertkov trio is the center of the whole film. And while being too discrepant, all of them are giving each other what they lack. Paul Giamatti who plays Vladimir Chertkov tries not to make audience laugh at his personage, but to give hime patience and some sympathy. In the end this self-confident person will understand what does real love means and how his own views were far from the essence of life, its real values.
If you want to pass this way to real values, to see the wonderful story of true love and touch to the Russian history from philosophic point, don’t miss the last masterpiece from Michael Hoffman symbolically named ““The Last Station”.
