Product Description

Tempest (1958)


Alberto Lattuada


Alexander Pushkin (novel), Ivo Perilli (screenplay)


Silvana Mangano, Van Heflin, Viveca Lindfors
Based on the Alexander Pushkin story The Captain's Daughter, Tempest is set in Russia during the reign of Catherine the Great. A Russian ensign named Peter Griniev (Geoffrey Horne), banished by Catherine (Viveca Lindfors) to a distant outpost, saves the life of Pugachov (Van Heflin), leader of a peasant uprising. Allowed to escape, Griniev tries to warn of the Pugachov's plans, but the Russian generals refuse to listen. When Griniev attempts to remove Pugachov's daughter (Silvano Mangano) from harm's way, he is accused of desertion. This time it is Pugachov's turn to rescue Griniev by convincing Catherine that the boy is innocent of treason. Tempest compensates for its overall dullness with a few brilliantly staged battle sequences.

  1. revived old memories 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 28th 2017

    This is an exciting action movie from 1958. My Father took me to see it in 1959 when i was eight, and i never forgot the impact it made on me. It isn't an "A" movie, but it had a fetching story line. The major actor is Van Heflin and as usual, doesn't disappoint. I tried for years to find this movie, until locating it accidentally while browsing the internet. Thank you Zeus.

  2. "A Magnificent Film for History Buffs" 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 8th 2017

    Based against a background of the Peasant Revolution during the reign of Catherine the Great, a host of great actors bring Pushkin's exciting tale to life. The acting, the photography, and Lattuada's clever filming of the battle scenes, makes for 90 minutes of movie pleasure. I saw this film when it first came out in the late 1950s and have been looking for it on DVD for years. Thanks Zeus for making this wonderful film possible.
