    Haunting, beautifully filmed, and intriguing characters ... but not less engaging than it could have been. The detached feel and icy scenery is somehow fitting in this story of surpressed passion and male ineffectuality.

    Intensely romantic, acute portrayal of the bittersweet aftertaste of unrequited love.

    Is very well adapted to Pushkin's work. The music is excellent and fills the expectator with the emotions and feelings expressed in this drama.

    Ralph Fiennes is a genius, a prophet, a saint of acting. I keep wondering, how a human being could have received such amounts of God's grace, as he has.

    A riveting, unsentimental tragedy of unrequited love.

    (Tyler's) voice is still mall American, and Onegin's rejection of her is nowhere near as puzzling or as tragic as it's supposed to be.
  3. Tatyana, the embodiment of a heroine whose still waters run deep, requires more maturity than Tyler as yet possesses.
