Excellent adaptation of the book
3 April 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Excellent adaptaion of the first book by Boris Akunin "Azazel'". The book is the first of series of books about Fandorin, a young Russian detective. The movie was made for TV, but it was done very well, following the book to the end. Currently there are talks of making an English version movie. Unfortunatelly, this movie is entirely in Russian.
