Synopsis:
This acclaimed BBC adaptation remains faithful to Fyodor Dostoevsky's classic novel. Set in St Petersburg. In the second half of the 19th century, the psychological thriller tells of a desperate young murderer. Caught in a web of his own guilt. Rodya Raskolnikov is a poverty-stricken student living among the fetid alleyways and crumbling tenements of St Petersburg, intense and highly intelligent, Raskolnikov believes he is among a class of men destined for greatness and as such is permitted to breach 'normal' moral values. He decides to test his courage and integrity by killing a Pawnbroker, a mean old woman whom he is sure nobody will miss.
The murder, however, only serves to draw Raskolnikov into a nightmare world in which he is dogged by guilt, Paranoia and alienation. Faced with the Wily investigator Porfiry, who sets up a complex series of traps, encounters and conversations, can Raskolnikov escape his own conscience Or the seemingly inevitable punishment?

Good production - Crime and Punishment review by BE

A good presentation of Dostoyevsky's great novel but in my opinion, does not match the 1979 television interpretation starring John Hurt as Ruskolnikov and Timothy West as Petrovich - both master craftsmen In their field

Excellente mise en scène. L'esprit de Dostoievski assez bien respecté. Pourrait être une série de bonne facture.
