A family affair. - Onegin review by RhysH

Directed by Martha Fiennes with music by Magnus Fiennes the eponymous hero played by Ralph Fiennes and others of the extended family in the cast. Based on the Pushkin verse novel it is beautifully shot, not an image out of place.

Ralph Fiennes plays Onegin with languid insouciance and Liv Tyler plays on her Pre-Raphaelite beauty with hardly a twitch of facial muscle. In the final scene between the two, although again visually stunning, Fiennes is very creepy, more stalker than would be lover.

Two excellent cameos, first from Alun Armstrong as Zavetsky, a central figure leading up to the duel, played with venom. Was there more of this character left on the cutting room floor? Then Simon McBurney as the foppish aristo who believes French is the only language for the cultural elite.

A visual feast.
