Dark Eyes

The title refers to a 1987 Russian-Italian film known by the same in English starring Marcello Mastroianni. It was inspired by several stories by Chekhov, surely one of the greatest storytellers of all time.

I offer these details mostly for a fellow film-lover in North Wales. If you haven't already seen it, Sadhya, I strongly recommend the film despite its predictable Chekhovian ending.

Well, I suppose the “heroine” (there are no heroes nor heroines in Chekhov) could have looked like this in another time and place. But her eyes are dark here because I had to make do with some enthusiastic (and hideous) make-up spoiling what is otherwise be a very pretty model. That's why all of hers are in black and white.

And you've probably realised by now that I'm fishing in the back of my digital sofa for images, as I have no time to create new ones. I'm pretty sure I haven't posted this one and the editing dates from today.
