Whoops! IMDb for once gets it wrong!
1 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I bought this DVD expecting to see Marius Goring (who heads the cast in the IMDb listing) as Karenin. However as soon as I saw Karenin I knew that the actor wasn't Goring but the no less admirable Albert Lieven! Oddly his filmography doesn't credit him with this film and Goring's does: but the arbiter must be the film's final credits which duly give the role to Lieven! Otherwise this version, though it eliminates the Levin plot and Anna's delirium after childbirth, is worth seeing - mainly for the exquisite Claire Bloom's reckless commitment to the illicit love aroused in her by Sean Connery's likely Vronsky. The treatment, in a series of longish scenes, is somewhat theatrical, but the costumes are splendid and director Rudolph Cartier sweeps the film to its shocking conclusion.
