A real groaner from the early 1930a, WE LIVE AGAIN tells the story of a Russian soldier who does wrong by a serving girl and years later, attempts to set things right for her, now a wrongly convicted murderer headed for Siberia, and redeem himself at the same time. This may have been based on a Tolstoy tale, although I was reminded however faintly of DR. ZHIVAGO. It is only worth watching for a young Frederic March as the soldier turned nobleman with a heavy conscience. His costar, Anna Sten, is a bad European import, shrill and definitely no Greta Garbo. Also, there appears to be continuity problems with the film, possibly due to bad or hasty editing. Watch it for March.
