If this is not a masterpiece, than what is?
8 June 2004 | by (Russia.) – See all my reviews

Yes, I do consider this TV(mini series) be a masterpiece.

How does this adaptation of Dostoevsky's novel differ from any other? There are many reasons why this version is the best.

1. A truly amazing, superb cast (maybe with an exception of Nastasya Filipovna, but if you know something about Russia's movie industry you must know, that there are no decent actresses of an age needed for this role, so their choice was not that bad). Mironov became a really well-known and loved actor of my country after this film. Everyone in the movie is great, but whom I personally admired was A.Petrenko and his portrayal of General Ivolgin, just as in the novel!!!

2. This adaptation is the first full one of Fedor Michailovich's novel, it really has depth and that special feeling when you read his books was captured in this version and can be really sensed.

There are lots of, lots of reasons why this film is great, it is by far the best Russian (and I mean Russian, not USSR's) TV Series.

I hope that Bortko, who brought to life Sobachie Serdze and Idiot will make something really great from his upcoming project Master i Margarita.

Thank you, Mr.Bortko, you gave Dostoevsky's novel a new life, after the release of this movie Dostoevsky was again as popular as he deserves to be. I hope that more people will read his novels after watching this.

This is an adaptation of F.M.D's greatest novel we've been all waiting for!!! 10/10.
