The Brothers Karamazov In the film The Brothers Karamazov there was before the viewer a distinct theme concerning how the audience felt towards Demetri the eldest Karamazov son Throughout the movie one can trace a tangible pattern of how Demetri is portrayed the actions they used to achieve this and the effect it had on the viewer As the movie begins we are introduced to two of the brothers Karamazov the aforementioned Demetri and his youngest brother Alexey Immediately we can detect that they are in some senses polar characters with Demetri being the gruff hot-tempered lustful and vulgar one with Alexey being mild mannered religious and well spoken They provide a stark contrast to each other with their juxtaposition highlighting their traits and personas At times the film overtly goes out of its way to show Demetri as bad guy Within a short amount of time were made aware of his financial debts both to his associates and poker mates as well as his own father Not long into the movie Demetri is thrown into jail Even more the movie goes out of its way continue on this theme when younger brother Alexey says you are like Russia too big and strong too excitable In short a conscious effort is made at the movies beginning to give us this impression of Demetri However as the movie progresses so does viewer opinion of Demetri Slowly ones outlook on Demetri changes as does the movies portrayal of him Perhaps most importantly we see Demetri the man in love He for the first time is truly exposed to the audience his feelings laid out before us We see he is a man infatuated with Grushenka yet betrothed to Katerina His love initially not repaid by Grushenka helps us identify with Demetri What man hasnt felt the pain from being a scorned lover This viscous love triangle in general makes one feel a little
