The Brothers Karamazov

0 Love It
Save it
Painstaking attempt to reduce Dostoevsky's novel to manageable proportions, retaining most of the major episodes but contriving to miss the point - the tortuous quest for God - by giving one brother (Brynner) the star role whereas all four should contribute equally to the theme. Very uncertain in period and atmosphere, and saddled with some terrible performances.
