Director David Fishelson transforms Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov and The Idiot into spellbinding drama that illuminates both titanic novels.

In The Brothers Karamazov, the passionate brothers spring to life, led by their roué of a father – who entertains himself by drinking, womanizing, and pitting his three sons against each other. The men have plenty to fight over, including the alluring Grushenka.

In The Idiot, we meet the kindly, childlike Prince Myshkin as he returns to the decadent social whirl of 1860s St. Petersburg. The two most beautiful, sought-after women in the city compete for his affections, in a duel that grows increasingly dangerous.

    " read this while in high school. quite elocuent and charged with high description writing value. good source of inspiration for the traditional and very particuarly unique russian style writing "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Pauciulo | 7/22/2012

    " The singularly most powerful, finely wrought novel ever written. Part mystery, part family melodrama and broad contemplation of God, man, faith, and the human condition. Will make you see the world in a new way. Only a few artistic works, in any medium, in the Western canon can compare. "

    " I have read this book three times and i am not done yet. A masterpiece. "

    " It is now one of my favorite book of all time.The book has everything that any reader wants to read in a book,it has love,crime,family and religion.If anyone wants to read a book that gives them some things to think about this is the right book for you. "

    " Read this circa 1978, want to reread. I'll probably get more out of it now. "

    " Il capolavoro di ogni tempo.
    E non ho altro da aggiungere. "

    " The first time I read this, I thought it would kill me. Now I hold it as a measuring point for other books. And I think it could kill most books in page to page combat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alberto | 5/10/2011

    " The Brothers Karamazov, included in Time Magazine's 10 Greatest Books of All Time, proves to be one great reading experience. The large discourse on philosophy, religion is a highlight in this last book of Dostoyevsky. "

    " a very unusual story. there's a lot to read into and a fair amount of social commentary and philosophical implications surrounding the death/murder of the asshole dad. Does god exist? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ravi | 5/6/2011

    " the author is extemely details in his descrption of the characters of the brothers and the plot and it was a bit too tedious for me for a comfortable read.... returned it back after around 90 pages of reading..will take it up again in leisure and read it .. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Swallowfeather | 5/5/2011

    " *The* classic. What can I say? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben | 5/3/2011

    " 300 pages with these dreadful characters was enough. 550 more pages to go.....not for me. I'm done with Dostoyevsky. I'm done with russians as a group. "
