Quotes

Raskolnikov: Time to go.
Dounia: To turn yourself in?
Raskolnikov: Yes. But i don't know why.
Dounia: Because by taking your suffering, you'll be taking away half your crime.
Raskolnikov: Crime? Some crime. I killed a filthy old money lender, Dounia. A louse! I'm only going to confess because... I'm a coward. A mediocrity.

I LOVED IT AND AMAZING PERFORMANCE BY JOHN.
23 January 2018 | by nickyraehSee all my reviews

DON'T CARE IF PEOPLE DON'T AGREE WITH ME BUT I WAS MESMERISED BY JOHN SIMM IN PARTICULAR. AND WHO SAID HE'S NOT ATTRACTIVE !!! I'VE LOVED ALL HIS WORK SINCE.

QUITE A COMPLEX PSYCHOLOGICAL GRITTY & DARK STORY, BUT EVEN AS A WOMAN THAT'S WHAT I'M ATTRACTED TO. ALL THESE YEARS IT'S STILL STUCK IN MIND, AND KEEP MEANING TO TRY AND BUY IT ON DVD.
