In the opulent St. Petersburg of the Empire period, Eugene Onegin is a jaded but dashing aristocrat - a man often lacking in empathy, who suffers from restlessness, melancholy and, finally, regret. Through his best friend Lensky, Onegin is introduced to the young Tatiana. A passionate and virtuous girl, she soon falls hopelessly under the spell of the aloof newcomer and professes her love for him

Every time I watch this film my heart aches. Exceptional acting by Ralph Fiennes and Liv Tyler. The use of the visual metaphors were pointed and significant. I loved the last shot of the title sequence in the beginning it really sets the tone for the movie and proves to be prophetic in nature. Tatyana's last words him at her name day resonate though whispered because it was poignant and true. I love this film. Watch it and it should compel you to make it a favorite. It is definitely one to remember. There are 4 things that come not back and the missed opportunity is one of them. Thank you for putting this here. I was in the mood for greatness today.
