This is one of my most favorite of all movies.
Grushenka, played by Maria Schell , was in love with a Polish Officer and Dimitrii, played by Yul Brenner, was in love with Grushenka.
When the Polish Officer called upon Grushenka to meet him at a tavern she ran to him.
Dimitrii went insane trying to find her. When he finally did Grushenka asked him if she should forgive the polish Officer for treating her so shabbily. Dimitrii said: You already did by showing up.
Actions spoke louder than words.
This is an amazing movie and I hope Turner Classics plays it again. I taped it to watch again.
This where Dimitrii really falls in love.
This movie comes with snow , Ice Skating on a lake, Russian Troika Horses, a Dancing Bear, Gypsies, music, tea from samovars, and the hot smells of good BBQ'd meat on skewers.
Life is seen in a village With Shatner playing as a Monk.
It is filled with love, hate, suffering, murder, and a never ending
question of whether or not God exists.
The old Saintly Monk Father Zasima, who refused to settle the Karamazov dispute over money, bowed down to the floor and Kissed Dimitrii's hand to his Father's horror.
Every actor played his part with heart . I saw other actors playing this Karamazov story, but none surpasses this one with Yul Brenner and Maria Schell.
Hope you get to see it one day.
