The Brothers Karamazov / Bratya Karamazovy / Братья Карамазовы (1968) 3 x DVD5
This is the classic Russian cinematic rendering of the classic Dostoevsky novel. The Brothers Karamazov is the final work both of Dostoevsky and the prominent Russian director Ivan Pyryev, who died during the shooting of this monumental film. Pyryev was the first Soviet director to break the semi-taboo on Dostoevsky. This is his grandest work.
The story of the three Karamazov brothers, full of Dostoyevsky's demonic sensuality. Dmitri, a gambler, Ivan, a thinker, and Aleksei, a monk, are living through their different problems. Ivan is trying to save the world by making a story of "The Great Inquisitor". Dmitri, who lost money in gambling, is begging his father to help him. But the father gives a lot of money to his mistress Grushenka.
