Storyline

In Doctor Zhivago, the life of a young doctor is intertwined with the fate of Russia at the beginning of the 20th century. Yuri Zhivago is orphaned at a young age, and his uncle brings him to Moscow, where he studies medicine while living with his uncle's family. At a New Year's ball, he witnesses an assassination attempt on a high society lawyer named Komarovksy. What shocks Yuri is the identity of the shooter: Lara Gishar. By coincidence, he had been present earlier when Lara and Komarovsky first met at the Montenegro hotel. At the time, their magnetism and their unusual relationship, both extremely open and particularly secretive, revealed to the young doctor a world of emotions he had yet to experience. Yuri is told that Komarovsky played a role in his father's suicide, but this news has less effect on him than the chance meeting with Lara. At the beginning of WWI, Doctor Zhivago goes to the front, leaving his wife and children in Moscow. He is unaware that many years later Lara ... Written by Pavel P.

Best of the genre of television series
23 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One would not expect such deep and powerful work in the television series genre. The authors of the work have by far surpassed the boundaries of the genre, or simply haven not noticed them in the process. The adaptation of the Nobel prize winning novel is done by one of the best forces in the craft of script –– Arabov (who best known for his work with post-tarkovskian director Sokurov -- see their recent Faust), joined by the wonderful leading cast of Menshikov, Hamatova, Yankovsky and extremely expressive performance of the smaller parts. Music by Artemiev seems to indicate that this composer grew a lot since his fruitful engagement with Tarkovsky.

A note: IMDb mistakingly uses a poster from another movie with the same title.
