Blows the doors off the original.

This version is much better than the 1965 film with Omar Sharif. Although it didn't have the lavish production shot in Technicolor, cinemascope and with a cast of thousands, what it did have were characters you actually cared about.

In this newer version, you didn't merely see the characters behave a certain way, you understood why they behaved that way and what made them change and grow for the better and for the worse.

If you want to see a "Gone With The Wind" or "Titanic" sort of a film, watch the original. If you want to see good drama with good character development check out this one.

very impressive !!

I must say that this version is much better than David Lean's 1965 movie.

Of course, it does not have the great musical theme and the excellent photography as the 1965 version. But it seems much more comprehensive and realistic. The actors and actressess all did very well.

I am very glad that Boris Pasternak has finally been posthumously reinstated and his son allowed to accept the Prize medal on his father's behalf at a ceremony in Stockholm in 1989.

The decline of communism, the breakup of the Soviet Union have all finally vindicated him. Thank God justice has been done !!
