«The personal life is dead in Russia. History has killed it.» Against the backdrop of the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution comes one of the greatest love stories ever filmed. Omar Sharif and Julie Christie shine as the doctor-poet Zhivago and the nurse Lara who are torn apart. The Siberian taiga becomes a character of its own through Lean's masterful compositions, which render even harsh Russian winters, glimpsed through train doors, striking, romantic, and lush.
