I higly recommend it, but only to those already familiar with Lumet's film.
I'll have to disagree on this one. I haven't seen the original, but found Mihalkov's remake to be a great movie nevertheless. It does deal with racial issues a lot, a topic that has been very current at all times in the former sowjetunion.
