Onegin is as pretty a picture as anyone could want of a Russian lit-flick ...
The heart of Pushkin's celebrated classic pumps firm and full in debuting director Martha Fiennes' richly textured pic version.
Even if grand pathos isn't achieved, Martha Fiennes makes a brave and welcome stab at it.
There is a cool, mannered elegance to the picture that I like, but it's dead at its center.
Unable to capture either its wit, psychological acuity, or formal rigor, the movie essentially reduces the schematic, seesaw narrative to doomy clichés.
The film's only real flaw -- alas, a substantial one -- is that its pace is too deliberate and gets more deliberate as it goes along.
Overall, Onegin is a bit of a sloppy and untidy affair, but that goes a long way in distinguishing it from the 7000 other movies of this type.
With a character as enigmatic and detached as Onegin, you want at least an opinion or a point of view on his actions from the filmmakers, something other than splendor served up frame-by-frame.
Those who might appreciate a solid personal story told with integrity by a director with a sufficient budget to dazzle us with a few scenes that might have come out of "Dr. Zhivago" could do worse than take in "Onegin."
Fiennes strolls through "Onegin," his sister Martha's hot-blooded, balmy first film, like a dandy on the prowl for some young woman to hurt.
The film fails in spite of Liv Tyler's remarkable performance.
When I think back to much of the movie I suppose it was kind of boring, but truthfully I really enjoyed watching this movie, it was just a very relaxing movie wich was nice sense I was watching it at 3 in the morning. Yet it didnt put me to sleep. A semi-interesting plot wich is really help up by the act, that at times can be cheesey but good. Ralph Fiennes is spectacular as always. If I could listen to any voice for the rest of my life it would be his. He is a complete gentleman! and HIs sexy smoldering eyes are only enhanced by his off redish colored hair. Ah I just love everything about him. Liv Tyler wasnt bad. All she did in this movie was pout and be sad but it worked. The costumes were fantasic I looved all the fur accets. See how they are in russia is deffinetly is a givven but it was used so well and not over the top. The cinematography is also quite good when it comes into play. If youre look for a movie to suggle up on the couch and just chill to, and you love ralph fiennes this is it. But if your not a huge Fiennes fan like me I guess the movie is really noting special, but i enjoyed it.
Onegin was a charming and dramatic romance. It contained all of the elements of a great film. The acting was good. I could have only desire an extension of the romantic relationship with Onegin and Tatiana. There were very dramatic moments in the movie. The snow scenes were beautiful and I recommend this movie for those romantics at heart.
It was boring, had me snoring, te de doo da. Extravagant in detail but thin in just about everything else. Woman loves man, man leaves, man comes back, loves woman, they don't get together. More about one womans pride and refusal to cheat on her husband if anything. It is bland and contains no substance. The emotions it deals with are the most interesting aspects but everything looks so dreary. A duel half way through was magnificently filmed and really captured the tension of the moment, as well as being beautifully shot. Fiennes' reaction was brilliant and thoughtful, as is a lot of the acting in this film. It's just a shame that the film is as interesting as putting on a coat, and not a nice shiny coat with lights, just a normal brown coat. Doesn't even have a hole in it with an interesting story behind it.
A personal favorite.
