CRIME AND PUNISHMENT (PRESTUPLENIE I NAKAZANIE) (3DVD) / ПРЕСТУПЛЕНИЕ И НАКАЗАНИЕ - 3 DVD
A screen adaptation of the novel by the great Russian writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
The 19th-century Russia. A poor student, Rodion Raskolnikov, commits a crime which is inevitably followed by pangs of conscience: his soul, burdened by the sin of murder, is torn between faith and faithlessness, hope and despair. The investigation conducted by detective Porfiry Petrovich finally points to Raskolnikov. But before his meeting with the investigator, Rodion experiences a genuine love. This very love will help him repent.
The life of the mysterious 19th-century St. Petersburg, the strong, controversial characters and an unexpected outcome hold the viewer in suspense up to the very end.
