A screen adaptation of the second version of A. M. Gorky’s play “Vassa Zheleznova”. In this family children were taught from the early years to put accent on the word “my”: my ship, my house, my factory… Here they counted the money earned by other people’s labour and could lose a fortune overnight playing cards; here they indulged in utter debauchery and were sneaking on each other; they prayed and engaged in shady dealings in the name of God… Vassa had it all: money, power, clout, brains and grip. And only one thing she did not have – the future, for the year 1917 was drawing nearer and the age of the Zheleznovs and the Khrapovs was coming to an end.
In this house, children were taught from a young age always clearly say "my" - my ship, my house, my factory. Here count the money acquired by the labor of others, and overnight playing ... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

The plot is also predictable. The cinematography feels superimposed and mainly about long tracking long takes that are more about form. Also the sound quality was terrible and it's "lifelike" way of many tracks of conversations at once wasn't naturalistic it was frustrating. The only things going for this film is the slight pleasure in seeing so many cameos from stars.

jay n (fr) wrote: Fine rendering of Marjorie Rawlings autobiographical novel. The material is well handled by Ritt an erratic director who produced most of his best work when it had a southern feel to it. Excellent work from two very good actresses, Mary Steenburgen and Dana Hill and a great one, Alfre Woodard. Rip Torn gives one of his most well judged performances keeping the ham that occasionally slips into his acting out of his work here.

Lindsey H (gb) wrote: A slightly odd but brilliant film from Lindsay Anderson who also directed 'If..' which is also brilliant. A young and gorgeous malcolm McDowell and the young and equally gorgeous Helen mirren make this film one of my favourites as I adore them both. Also a great soundtrack by Alan Price. This film is very long which I think may limit its appeal to most, but for fans of Lindsay Anderson or Malcolm McDowell and good old British films from the 70's it's fantastic!
Scott W (br) wrote: I watched this because Mr. Harry Knowles said that he enjoyed it more than The Brothers Bloom, which struck me as movie blasphemy. While I don't necessarily agree, I loved it. This is a fantastic crime caper with great, great acting. This took you to a different world, and was loaded with charisma. (My only beef was that I didn't buy the romance between Caine & McLaine) Delightfully enjoyable movie!
