New York Times:
Mr. Bolt has reduced the vast upheaval of the Russian Revolution to the banalities of a doomed romance.
David Lean's 1965 adaptation of Pasternak's romance of the Russian Revolution is intelligent and handsomely mounted, though it doesn't use its length to build to a particularly complex emotional effect.
Although its portentous historical drama evaporates once you return to the fresh air, watching it can be seductive.
Yes it's old-fashioned and sappy. But it's impossible not to swoon.
One of the most meticulously designed and executed films.
