The beautiful Antonina Miliukova falls in love with the famous composer Tchaikovsky the minute she hears his wonderful music. Tchaikovsky, at first showing no interest in her, soon comes to see the promised dowry and the chance to dispel rumours around his private life. But this marriage is a true disaster. Morbidly attached to the composer, Antonina never ceases to look for his attention.
A master class in film directing, Tchaikovsky’s Wife offers bold scenes on the verge of the surreal and presents the full scope of Kirill Serebrennikov’s true talent.
