Midst frozen tundra
Snow melts under Omar's gaze
Ice palace passion

Haiku Movie Review
Contest Winner


In this movie, I fell in love with Omar Sharif's eyes. I also loved the movie though. For me, the most memorable scenes take place at the ice palace at Varykino where Zhivago and Lara steal a few days of passion and seclusion.
