Good watch for fans of Fyodors work
3 May 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the only film that has somewhat captured the feel of Fyodors' book. Full of shadows, darkness, grief, and emotion through visuals, this movie can be a test to sit through for those not die-hard FD fans, but never a moment is wasted. I would venture to say that sound would only take away from this film, in the sense that it is easier to get the feel of what Dostoevsky meant by watching rather than listening. Read the book first. If you like it, and understand somewhat of what the author was trying to say (or ask), you will enjoy this movie. Try your local library if you have trouble finding this version.
