Product description

Product Description

Acclaimed BBC adaptation of Dostoevsky's classic novel. Poverty-stricken ex-student Raskolnikov (John Simm) plans the murder of a hated, local pawnbroker, not only to alleviate his financial problems, but also as an existential exercise, feeling himself to be an extraordinary being, able to commit such acts without guilt, remorse or justification. However, after the bungled murder attempt, Raskolnikov soon suffers psychological problems, alerting investigating detective Porfiry (Ian McDiarmid) to his guilt.

From Amazon.co.uk

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?

Simm’s Raskolnikov is a "truly startling, genuinely mature performance" --The Guardian

RTS awards (2002), winner: Best Production Design, Best Costume Design, Best Tape and Film Editing.

Extras
Audio commentary with John Simm, screenwriter Tony Marchant, director Julian Jarrold & producer David Snodin.
