admirable work
19 July 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

for to be more a duel of ideas than a version for large public. for the way to translate the universe of the novel in a dramatic and subtle definition of characters , more as presences or symbols. for the right Ivan and father Zosima. for a form of delicacy to explore a world so simple and with profound roots. it is a classic. not surprising. except the meet with atmosphere of an universe who becomes more than special but propose, in inspired manner, the return to the Dostoyevski questions and expected answers.
