Too condensed, too much Russian spoken without translation/subtitles, and.too little acting. No emotion was shown in the performance until toward the end; before that the actors are pretty much just speaking their lines. And the actor playing Count Bronsky was too old for the.part. Overall, a huge disappointment. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com (ISBN 0790731614, VHS Tape)

Sophie Marceau plays the title character in this 1997 version of Tolstoy's classic, set in Imperial Russia. Bernard Rose (Paperhouse) directs, but his accent is on sumptuousness instead of performance, and the result is that much of what happens--especially Anna's affair with Vronsky (Sean Bean)--is opaque and unbelievable. (Bean in particular is badly suited to his part.) A redeeming feature is Alfred Molina's role as the narrator, but he alone can't prop up Rose's façade of grand passion. --Tom Keogh

Leo Tolstoy's novel of love in 1880s Imperial Russia.
