Amazing dancers and wonderful choreography
Amazing choreography! Super skilled ballet dancers!
There was no sound to the movie! The movie should have been checked previously before playing it for an audience. Then we had to wait for a whole half hour before we got our money returned! The whole experience was disgusting!
It was absolutely adorable! Wonderful dancing, amazing choreography , perfect staging!
Real masterpiece. I watched many ballets staged by Eiphman, he is pure genius, the best choreographer I ever saw.
Thanks to the good movie production I had the impression Im right near the stage.
William Shatner as a moderating influence is a bad way to start your film.
Six excellent actors working under Mr. Brooks. While not fully appreciating the original novel, this is decent enough for Hollywood. Though if you are looking for great acting, focus on Cobb, Schell, Bloom, Stehli, & Opatoshu. The others are just minor variations of the characters they usually perform.
The screen adaptation was slightly adjusted from the novel but great film nonetheless starring the great Yul Brynner, with further great performances by Lee J. Cobb, Maria Maria Schell and William Shatner. 3.9/5
Tough to fit the whole novel into a film even if it was three hours. It does have some good moments, but it ultimately falls short of the mark. One of the actresses looks like my niece, Shatner was good and the brothers managed to capture he whole family feel of the book. Other than that, the direction and writing did not do the book justice. Some of the sets were memorable.
only average acting, somewhat melodramatic, predictable plot
Did not think Brynner could do it, but he does it. A great film that is faithful to the written masterpiece. Maria Schell, I adore you, too.
