One of Russia's most famous directors weaves this darkly humorous romantic tale set in Italy. Russian poet Gortchakov, researching the life of a famous composer in Italy, meets the mysterious Domenico, who may be a mystic or a madman. At the same time, he's tempted to have an extramarital fling with Eugenia, his guide and translator. Nostalgic dreams about Mother Russia haunt the poet, as does Domenico's strange hold over him.
