Great play, good movie
31 August 2005 | by Borgel_42See all my reviews

This play, of course, would have been a lot better seen on stage, but watching this movie was still an excellent use of my time. The best part of this particular screen adaptation is Dustin Hoffman (This is the first movie he starred in) who perfectly plays Zoditch, the schmo whose psyche is analyzed in Journey of the Fifth Horse. The other actors also play their roles excellently. The play is simple, low-key, and thoughtful, and the characters are dynamically human. I have not seen very many plays, and I have seen none of Ivan Turgenev's, but I was touched by every scene and never bored for a moment.

I recommend this solemnly poignant film to everyone.
