An excellent franco polish production, prophetic.
5 October 2003 | by (Wellington) – See all my reviews

Dostoievski was a giant and a master painter of the Russian soul. This film is a good rendition of his work, altogether prophetic (on the Bolcheviks) and coined with pessimism.

The Slavic twist that Wajda brought to the picture is essential. Madness, brittle human relations and utopia are the key ingredients among which a pleiad of very Russian characters evolve. None of them seem to be part of the real world, they seem more rooted in the realm of philosophy.

Reading Dostoievski and Tolstoi could have avoided many ugly things indeed.
