Three Days of Rain is a 2002 American film directed by Michael Meredith and starring Penelope Allen, Erick Avari, and Alimi Ballard. Based on Anton Chekhov's short stories, the plot takes place in Cleveland city during a rainstorm. It was the last film to star Peter Falk, famous for playing disheveled detective Columbo.[1][2]


Three Days of Rain is a film from 2002 that takes six short stories of Anton Chekov and sets them in modern-day Cleveland, Ohio. The film opens as a storm rolls into Cleveland that will bring rain for three straight days. The film follows six separate people through their unique struggles and challenges. There is a young woman who is forced to give up her daughter and is willing to do anything to be with her. Another character is a cab driver who struggles to cope with the loss of his son. There is Thunder (Michael Santoro), who is a tile maker who is fighting to keep his business from going under, and Denis (Joey Billow), a mentally handicapped Janitor who is faced with losing his job. Through the entire film there is soft jazz and the banter of a local Cleveland disk jockey, the jazz also doubles as the film's soundtrack.
