Based on Ivan Goncharov's novel, this well-shot film chronicles the life--or lack thereof--of Oblomov, a slothful, good-natured serf owner who does nothing save for lie in bed and eat, pondering one vital question: should he get up'
Based on the classic Russian novel by Ivan Goncharov, "Oblomov" is the story of a wealthy landowner who simply refuses to leave his bed. The idle protagonist resolves to maintain his horizontal posture indefinitely, despite the efforts of numerous well-wishers who try to coax him outside. Pining for the magical vision of reality he enjoyed as a child, Oblomov would rather let his life waste away than come out of his lair and face the drabness of everyday existence.
