‘Crime and Punishment’ at Russian Centre

One of the world’s greatest story ‘Crime and Punishment’ made into cinema will be screened in two parts at the Russian Centre Colombo on Janaury 28 and February 3 at 6 pm.

This 1970 Soviet film in two parts directed by Lev Kulidzhanov, based on the novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Desperate young man plan the perfect crime—the murder of a despicable pawnbroker, an old women no one lovers and no one will mourn. Is it not just, he resons, for a man of genius to commit such a crime, to transgress moral law—if it will ultimately benefit humanity?

So begins one of the greatest novels ever written; a powerful pshchologycal study, a terrifying murder mystery, a fascinating detective thriller infused with philosphical, religious and social aommentary. Raskolhikov, an impverished student living in a garret in the gloomey slums of St. Petersburg, carries out his grotesque scheme and plunges into a hell of persecution, madness and terror.

On the surface, Crime and Punishment is the story of a murder, set in the city of St. Petersburg, then the Russian capital. It is not, however, a murder mystery.
