Crime and Punishment

Director Lev Kulidzhanov hews close to the aesthetic of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's classic novel. Law student Raskolnikov (Georgi Taratorkin) becomes a killer and falls deeper into the quagmire with every attempt to validate his abhorrent acts. A detective is hot on his trail, but Raskolnikov's deadliest foe may be himself. Innokenti Smoktunovsky and Viktoria Fyodorova co-star.
