User Reviews

Are you serious?
4 December 2002 | by smootenSee all my reviews

Andrew Davies assured that his version would be true to the Novel. In fact he has replicated all the romantic set pieces of Leans original version - the shooting ( Victor Komorosky was shot in the original version), train journey, Yuri's walk through the trees, meeting with Lara (notice Julie Christie ironing and Keiran washing clothes). Even the production design are similar. Unfortunetly, it does not match up to Leans excellent epic. What about the acting: Keiran is weak as Lara - Julie was better but neither did justice to the Lara role. Hans is the exact duplicate of Omar without the stash but Omar's performance had more depth. Sam Neil as with Hans is a duplicate of Rod Steiger in appearance but Steiger's performance was one of the highlights of Lean's version. Sam was good but weak in comparison. Andrew Davies version was not based on the Novel but on Leans original.
