Onegin is a 1999 film based on Alexander Pushkin's novel in verse Eugene Onegin, co-produced by Britishmarker and Americanmarker companies and shot mostly in the United Kingdommarker. Onegin is Martha Fiennes' directorial debut and stars her brother Ralph Fiennes in the role of Eugene Onegin, Liv Tyler as Tatiana, Irene Worth as Princess Alina and Toby Stephens as Lensky. Two other Fiennes siblings were involved in the project: Magnus Fiennes wrote the music and Sophie Fiennes appeared in a minor role.


The film compresses the events of the novel somewhat; for example, the Naming Day celebrations take place on the same day as Onegin's speech to Tatiana. As a result, Onegin's reasons for dancing with Olga and insulting Lensky are left somewhat ambiguous. Much like the 1988 film version, Onegin gives the impression that, during the duel sequence, Onegin shoots to kill.


Martha Fiennes' received the Best Director Award at the Tokyo Film Festival and the London Film Critics Circle's award for Best Newcomer. Onegin was also nominated for Best British Film at the British Academy Film Awards and Liv Tyler received the Golden Aries prize for Best Foreign Actress from the Russian Guild of Film Critics.
