Masterpiece
3 June 2003 | by (Saint-Petersburg, Russia) – See all my reviews

This picture is really great. Acting is brilliant (especially Mironov's as Prince Myshkin). Script is amazing. Bortko has done impossible: he caught a spirit of the novel. One of the best Russian pictures ever made. Rating: 10/10.
