a bad adaptation but still worth seeing.
1 August 2005 | by (Türkiye) – See all my reviews

I read "The Cossacks" two years ago. I always say watching an adaptation can't be as good as reading the original work of art(book).That's why I wasn't expecting so much from the film.I guess it explains a lot why the movie is still awaiting 5 votes. Well no matter what adaptation movies should be seen to visualize the world of a classic author like Dostoyevsky. On the one side the simple Cossacks who haven't disconnected from their culture,mores and values and on the other side the aristocratic pure Russian officials who are assigned to the lands of Cossacks. Russia is still a country that experiences such dilemmas and ambivalence.The book is the first step that Tolstoys takes to mastery of literature that's why I do suppose we should at least display the patience to see the adaptation. No matter how bad they are I think I should see every adaptation that's why I saw this one . And I am happy at least I saw it "such an old movie that is in a language I can't speak" no matter how bad an adaptation it is.
