L'accompagnatrice

Claude Miller France, 1992

Mihai Cristea's rating of the film The Accompanist

So I watched the movie on a train ride back from my grandma’s funeral. She died one week before her 90th birthday.And I suddenly remembered reading L'Accompagnatrice and a few other novellas by Nina Berberova in highschool. Aside from the literary qualities,I was staggered by her life story,including making her proper debut as a writer during her eighties.My grandma and Nina Berberova almost share the same death date
