Autumn Marathon / A Sad Comedy / Osenniy marafon / Осенний марафон (1979) DVD9 RUSCICO
A gentle, bittersweet tragicomedy, Autumn Marathon is about a middle-aged translator, Andrei Buzykin (Oleg Basilashvili), whose almost pathological niceness has trapped him in a seemingly endless series of awkward situations: his inability to turn anyone down has left him juggling a wife and mistress, on top of vast amounts of additional work usually done as unpaid favours for friends and students that's constantly interfering with his own projects to the point where his career is put at risk.
Finally, something snaps in him, and he decides to speak his mind - and returns home with the full intention of turning over a new leaf and adopting a policy of total honesty with wife, mistress, boss and students. But is this the right thing to do, or will he end up even more miserable than before?
