Love and Death is a 1975 American comedy film written and directed by Woody Allen. It is a satire on Russian literature starring Allen and Diane Keaton as Boris and Sonja, Russians living during the Napoleonic Era who engage in mock-serious philosophical debates. Pacifist Russian scholar Boris Grushenko has the hots for the beautiful Sonja, but cold feet for the Napoleonic Wars (1803-1815). Devastated by news of Sonja's plans to wed a foul-smelling herring merchant, Boris enlists in the army, only to return a penniless hero. Finally agreeing to marry him, Sonja settles down with poor Boris to a rich life of philosophy and celibacy. When the French troops invade Russia, the two formulate a plot to assassinate Napoleon.
