Crime and punishment - a rare moment of movie magic
8 April 2013 | by ulf-635-523367See all my reviews

It's very bold of a Swedish film company to choose Dostoevsky's Raskolnikov for a major production. All the more pleasing it is to note that the bold company succeeded and the result is not only passable but excellent. Crime and punishment has become a beautiful victory for the director Hampe Faustman. Faustman can consider this work as his masterpiece in the art. Additionally, he plays the student Raskolnikov in a clear and convincing way. Characters, settings, costumes, atmosphere - everything makes a startling true impression and the Swedish exteriors is so cleverly photographed, they provide a convincing Russian environment. Göran Strindbergs camera keeps a consistent naturalistic tone and it's actually a relief to undisturbed by any kind of musical accompaniment listen to Dostoevsky's words, so full of wisdom and penetrating knowledge of human nature.
