What are people saying?

  • Byron Brubaker's rating of the film Tempest

    Not to be confused with Shakespeare's The Tempest. This won an Art Direction Oscar for Menzies. Lowly Sgt. Ivan Markov is not accepted by the aristocratic Russian army. He falls for a princess and is thrown in jail. When the evil Communist Revolution hits, a leader of the revolution recognizes Ivan and offers him freedom if he helps to judge all who have been ripped from power. Ivan's conscience is tested.
