Zamyatin is still alive !
15 February 2015 | by theglassfortressSee all my reviews

I've just discovered this adaptation of Zamyatin's visionary novel, "We". I really like it, it is sober and close to the book. The choice of a dominant of blue color is a good choice to me, a watery and translucent color close to glass. In January,there has been a new adaptation of the book by Rémi Orts project and Alan B (january 2015). It's called "The Glass Fortress". It's a concept album, a rather simplified version of the story, with slight changes,that Zamyatin wouldn't disapprove. A short movie has been shot too.


In this world of "dictatorship of transparency", the Russian novel is more than ever actual and modern. I recommend "WIR", the album and the short movie "The Glass Fortress" as interesting complements of the book.
