Title Without witness / directed by Nikita Mikhalkov
Published Moscow, Russia : Ruscico, 1983


Description 1 online resource (90 min.)
Summary This absorbing movie is from beginning to end, no more than a dialogue that happens between a now-divorced couple when the ex-husband visits his former wife in her two-room apartment, intending to destroy her pending marriage to a colleague who has control over him and his career. Apparently the husband has always done whatever he could to further his own advancement, even at the expense of family and friends. Tension mounts as he tries to manipulate his ex-wife by any means possible
