About the Movie

Lara inspires lechery in Komarovsky (her mother's lover who is a master at surviving whoever runs Russia) and can't compete with passion for the revolution of the man she marries, Pasha. Her true love is Zhivago who also loves his wife. Lara is the one who inspires poetry. The story is narrated by Zhivago's half brother Yevgraf, who has made his career in the Soviet Army. At the beginning of the film he is about to meet a young woman he believes may be the long lost daughter of Lara and Zhivago.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Mr. Bolt has reduced the vast upheaval of the Russian Revolution to the banalities of a doomed romance. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Mar 4, 2018

Fresh: Literate, oldfashioned, soul-filling and thoroughly romantic. – TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: One of the most meticulously designed and executed films. – A.D. Murphy, Variety, Mar 4, 2018

Fresh: Despite the grim and brooding background, Zhivago has a surging buoyant spirit that is unquenchable. Doctor Zhivago is more than a masterful motion picture; it is a life experience. – James Powers, Hollywood Reporter, Dec 22, 2016

i was just thinking about this movie

i saw this movie a while ago and it was great, good family movie

My favorite film

An epic drama in old school style. The plot, acting, and score are all excellent. It is quite long and does not rush the pace as fast as more recent films so some viewers may get bored. For those with some patience you will experience a heart wrenching and grand film. Highly reccomended. In fact, it is my favorite film and I have watched it many times.

One of the best movies ever made

Wonderful. Outstanding. Nothing comes even close to the greatness of this movie. Just wish I could buy it!!!
