Movie Info

An high-ranking military officer in Czarist Russia fruitlessly woos a temperamental lady aristocrat, who orders him imprisoned -- until the Revolution, when he takes control of the Red army, attaining the upper hand over his former lover/betrayer. One of the most readily available John Barrymore silents.

Director Sam Taylor... guides this gorgeous costume drama like he was a master of the epic form...

Tempest is a pretty paradox, simultaneously pooh-poohing Russian socialism and applauding the American faux-ideal that love is blind to hierarchy.

Audience Reviews for Tempest

This movie was so boring, I couldn't watch it all. It's not that it's bad, I just couldn't stand it.
