Netherlands released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), Dutch ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: 2-DVD Set, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: This acclaimed BBC adaptation of Crime and Punishment 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 onversations, can Raskolnikov escape his own conscience or the seemingly inevitable punishment? ...Crime and Punishment - 2-DVD Set ( Crime & Punishment )

Raskolnikov's crime is graphically illustrated in all its gory awfulness. It really 'looks' shocking. More shocking than in the novel.
Real violence is always disgusting and the scene of the axe murders made me turn my head away. I couldn't watch it. The victims, particularly the pathetic Lizaveta, look vulnerable and pathetic. Authentic but sickening reality.
Simm is a good actor and he is convincing but he is never the Heathcliffesque character I envisaged from the book. He is somehow not brooding or even brutally handsome enough.
Porfiry Petrovitch is masterfully acted by Iain McDiarmid. It is not an easy role. Dounia and Sonia are weakly portrayed, but it might be said they are weak, unconvincing characters by Dostoevsky's standards. Perhaps that is too harsh. The long suffering Sonia reminds me of Mary Magdalene to Raskolnikov's anti-Christ.
But for me the revelation was Svidrigailov, played by Nigel Terry. Here we see the contrast between the high thinking 'good' man, Raskolnikov, who brutally murders in cold blood for a notion of greatness; and the morally corrupt, nefarious low man, Svidrigailov, who is willing to sacrifice himself just to be loved. The good man shuns love and kills; the bad man kills himself for love. The good man gives charity to imagine himself great and powerful, the bad man gives away his fortune to poor orphans and seeks no reward and no thanks. It precisely begs the question: 'who is good and who is bad? and who are we to judge so readily?Read more ›

Managed to generate tension throughout and worthy of the BBCPublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Quite possibly the best version of Crime and Punishment on film. John Simm's performance is nothing short of brilliant. DVD itself arrived quickly and in great condition.Published 7 months ago by S. Herbert

Wow, didn't know the book or the story. The first 10/15 minutes I was not that keen. I was on tender hooks, I'm not a good critic, just wanted to add a very worthy 5 stars.Published 17 months ago by Ms. J. K. Wilson
Very good acting. The viewing makes further reading of the book easier, especially for people whose mother tongue is not English.Published on 9 Jun. 2014 by Kan Wing Cheung
