Tragic and moralistic filming of Tolstoy's RESURRECTION
23 February 2004 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

This is a tragic character study with an uplifting (of a sort) ending. March plays a young soldier in love with a serving girl (Sten) at his aunt's estate. He romances her, impregnates her, and leaves her. Years later he has moved up in society and she has had to make a life in the gutter. He sits on a trial where she is accused of murder and she is mistakenly convicted (though believed innocent) - a stab at Russian justice - and sent to Siberia.

Through great soul-searching March realizes he was the cause of her downfall and to make amends, sells all he has and follows her to Siberia.

Depressing, yes, but quite moralistic - the kind of film Hollywood in its first Code years loved. March does quite well, as he had under Mamoulian's direction in DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE and is quite handsome here. Sten does well but tends towards the overly melodramatic at times. Garbo or Dietrich would have made this role far more memorable, methinks. (Mamoulian got to work with each of them just around this time - Garbo in QUEEN CHRISTINA and Dietrich in THE SONG OF SONGS).

Mamoulian's touch is not overly evident here - it's straightforward story-telling. Not a bad film -just not a particularly memorable one.
