Brothers Karamazov, The (1969) B+
This Oscar-nominated Soviet version of Dostoevsky’s famous novel is obviously better and more faithful to the source than Hollywood’s 1958 picture.
The film is long (about 4 hours) and the pacing is deliberate, but it’s worth the effort.
The initial director, Ivan Pyriev, died during production, and was replaced by Mikhail Ulianov.
In some countries, the film was released as “The Murder of Dmitri Karamazov.”
Oscar Nominations: 1
Best Foreign Language Film
Oscar Awards: None
The winner was the political thriller “Z.”
