Raskolnikov: Time to go.
Dounia: To turn yourself in?
Raskolnikov: Yes. But i don't know why.
Dounia: Because by taking your suffering, you'll be taking away half your crime.
Raskolnikov: Crime? Some crime. I killed a filthy old money lender, Dounia. A louse! I'm only going to confess because... I'm a coward. A mediocrity.

T.V doesn't get much better than this
19 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

`Crime and Punishment' is a superb achievement.

The film makes great use of its St Petersburg location, brilliantly recreating the poverty stricken Russian streets of the 1860's. The camerawork is bold and imaginative - this would be impressive at the cinema

  • on BBC2 it was an unexpected bonus. The viewer experiences the main


character's disorientated point of view. It is especially memorable in the frenetic, panic-stricken robbery, which makes you sweat and those bizarre dream sequences.

As a "period drama" (although that phrase seems strangely inappropriate for this production) this is obviously nothing like the usual Austen, Lawrence, Trollope et al but something far superior. One warning - the murder scene is HORRIBLE but if you think that that is a fault then blame Dostoevsky alone, for everyone involved has stuck so closely to the details and spirit of his novel. Personally, I found it necessary because of the initial impact it has on you, which becomes inexplicably diminished in memory as the film progresses and our sympathy with the murderer, grows.

The whole cast is impressive, especially Ian McDiamid (as the wily, cunning detective - Porfiry) ,Nigel Terry (as Raskolnikov's "evil double" Svidrigaïlov) and (my favourite) the ever-improving John Simm as the main character himself. John Simm is an actor I have always admired but one can't help but associate him with a contemporary setting. However, casting him as Raskolnikov was inspired and it is, to my mind, his best performance to date. Its astonishing how his rendition of the character is so immediately recognizable as the Raskolnikov from the novel (although you don't need to have read the book to appreciate his excellent performance). Handsome, bedraggled, intelligent, ailing, arrogant, benevolent, confused, likeable, troubled, regretful, - this is one of the most complex of characters but Simm pulls it off, making Crime and Punishment the most impressive drama to be shown on T.V in some time. Highly recommended
