THE PROPOSAL
(short film, 2016)
In English, adapted from the one-act play by Anton Chekhov

“Oh fucking hell…” – Ivan Vasilyevich Lomov

Ivan Vasilyevich Lomov has finally gathered the courage to propose. The lucky lady,
Natalya Stepanovna, is stubborn as hell, but not bad looking. Unfortunately for Ivan
Vasilyevich, though he might have prepared, recited and reworked his speech a
thousand times and is ready to go, he could never have predicted that a seemingly
settled, ancient family dispute would come to rain on his parade.
Filmed at NFTS, U.K.
