Subtitles for Morphine
September 16, 2014
In the fall of 2008, the film Morphine, made by director Alexey Balabanov and based on the short stories from Mikhail Bulgakov's A Young Doctor's Notebook, was shown in the Russian cinemas.
The actors Leonid Bichevin (Mikhail Alexeevich Polyakov), Ingeborg Dapkunaite (Anna Nikolaevna), Svetlana Pismichenko (Pelagia Ivanovna) and Andrey Panin (Anatoly Lukich) made a wonderful, albeit not always cheerful work of art, carried by a striking soundtrack , which is characterized by a particular selection of songs from the period 1900-1920.
