A month in the country is shortened to 72 hours in Patrick Marber’s sardonic, hazily erotic 135-minute distillation of a Russian classic. The influence of Turgenev’s 1850s country-house tragicomedy on fellow countryman Chekhov is clear, with its aristocratic family suffering the agony of stasis and yearning for something just out of reach.
