Tolstoy deserves better
5 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Tolstoy is one of the world's great writers, and his novels "Anna Karenina" and "War and Peace" are rightly regarded as the peak of realist fiction. Sadly, this 1967 Soviet adaptation of "Anna Karenina" is a sorry affair. Directed by Aleksandr Zarkhi, the cast is uniformly Russian, yet the very disjointed editing and earthbound script never translate Tolstoy's vision into film. With all due respect to Tatyana Samoylova, she just isn't cut out to be acting Anna - her performance and looks lack the shimmering seductiveness Anna possessed on paper. Nikolai Gritsenko is too old to play her husband Karenin, looking more like her father instead. Levin is relegated as an afterthought by Zarhi

  • his scenes with Kitty have almost all been cut out. The only actor


who came out with any honors is Yuriy Yakovlev's Stiva. The screenplay removes out so many scenes that it isn't a surprise that the film lasts a mere 145 minutes. Nothing less than a 3 hour movie could do justice to the long and rich novel. The culmination ends so abruptly that the movie has a sour after-taste of watching sub-par cinema. Tolstoy surely deserves better than this lukewarm adaptation from his home country.
