Wouldn't it have been lovely if we'd met before?
Before we did? Yes.
We'd have got married, had a house and children. If we'd had
children, Yuri, would you like a boy or girl?
I think we may go mad if we think about all that.
I shall always think about it.
Zhivago is a 1965 film directed by David Lean and based on the
famous novel by Boris Pasternak.
Christie as Lara in Doctor Zhivago (1965).
is sensitive and poetic nearly to the point of mysticism. In
medical school, one of his professors reminds him that bacteria
may be beautiful under the microscope, but do ugly things to
people. Yuri Zhivago's idealism and principles stand in brutal
contrast to the horrors of World War I, the Russian Revolution,
and the subsequent Russian Civil War. A large theme of the book
is how the mysticism of things and idealism is destroyed by both
the Bolsheviks and the white army. Yuri must witness cannibalism,
dismemberment, and other horrors suffered by the innocent
civilian population during the turmoil. Even the love of his
life, Lara (whose full name is Larisa Feodorovna), is taken from
him. He ponders on how the war can turn the whole world
senseless, and make a previously reasonable group of people
destroy each other with no regard for life. His journey through
Russia has an epic feeling because of his traveling through a
world which is in such striking contrast to himself, relatively
uncorrupted by the violence, and to his desire to find a place
away from it all, which drives him across the arctic Siberia of
Russia, and eventually back down to Moscow.
