Valentin: Love and be loved. That's the only reality there is in the world. Masha: He said that? Valentin: Yes, Tolstoy said it, but l'm saying it.
Sofya Tolstaya: I'm your little bird, you know the sounds I make. Leo Tolstoy: And that was some sort of love call, I suppose? Sofya Tolstaya: Brought you back to me.
Leo Tolstoy: Despite good cause for it, I have never stopped loving you. Sofya Tolstaya: Of course. Leo Tolstoy: But God knows you don't make it easy. Sofya Tolstaya: Why should it be easy? I am the work of your life, you are the work of mine. That's what love is.
Factual error: In the dinner scene with Helen Mirren and James MacAvoy, she was playing a gramophone recording of "Un Bel Di" from 'Madame Butterfly,' and the year was 1910. The opera was not recorded until much later.
