The Karamazov brothers, 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.
Plot: Based on the novel of the same name by Fyodor Dostoevsky. The tragic story of the Karamazov family takes place in a Russian province in the late 19th century. The relations of their father and three brothers are very complicated and contradictory. One of the brothers is accused of killing his father, whom he did not commit. The brothers are unable to help him, and only a loving girl follows him to hard labour.

A mixed bag
Some good performances, particularly Mark Prudkin as Fyodor Pavlovich, but the film’s overbearing theatricality works against the drama of Dostoevsky’s novel. The staginess is also not supported by the production design so the storm and stress performances feel ill matched to their realistic backgrounds. There’s not much of a cinematic style to the film either and what there is is rather unimaginative. There’s very little humor in the film for an adaptation of a novel that can be deeply and unsettlingly funny. And then there’s the strange, wrong headed casting of Andrey Myagkov as Alyosha, arguably the central point of view of the novel. Myagkov’s Alosha is a doltish void, somewhat of a holy fool, a characterization that might be found in other Dostoevsky novels but not in this one. All in all, a disappointment, not as embarrassing as the Yul Brenner adaptation but just as vulgar in its own way.
Classic Russian adaptation.
In a period where Russian film making was not distinguished, their classics adaptations were the peak achievements. Apparently the one film by Bolshoi dignitary Lavrov, who also plays Ivan, this Dostoievsky production makes a stagey first impression, not unlike co-director Pyryev’s version of THE IDIOT, but this is a much better film.
Concepts like Lavrov’s assertion, in the presence of the priests, that morality is a product of immortality or Dimitri’s claim that Korkoshko has never forgiven him for proving more ethical than herself, when he refused to take advantage of her need for money, are set up in the best printed page tradition and then elaborated in a way that we are not used to seeing in film, even those drawing on their connection with serious literature. The film form does rise to demands like the gypsy singer party or the diabolical illusion but these are not the highlights. The work’s strength is in putting on screen ideas and states of mind most makers would find too demanding.
Not blessed with subtlety and in fuzzy Sov Colour, visual trimmings are minimal – ducks splashing in a pond, singing monks, a windmill distant in the fog. The weight of the piece is carried by the distinctive cast performing the Dostoievski text full blast.
Respectable versions like the Fritz Kortner or Yul Bryner films, that try to compress the piece into normal feature length, are obliterated in any comparison.
