This a great yarn about love, lust, treachery, betrayal, and murder in a small Siberian village in the 1800's. Everything about this film is harsh, including the people, the climate, and the way that everyone treats each other. Seems like a very realistic portrayal to me, however, given what I've read about Tsarist Russia, and life in Siberia in general.
