Motivation switches on a dime, and the story takes the long way around to get anywhere it's going.

Hobbled mostly by the original material, a Dostoevsky novel, as well as an 80 minute cut imposed by the studio bosses, it is still worth seeing, especially for Kurosawa fans--this means everybody obviously.

Kurosawa's passion comes through in his creative solution to the challenge of long dialogue scenes... and in the gentle beauty of the snow-covered location footage...

There's a dreamlike quality to the story and the actors take on a trance-like state that fits the up-and-down emotional states of the volatile characters.
