Great disappointment
24 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

During the last year Tolstoy lived wasn't there about to be a great upheaval in the world? The great war was about to start. The Russian revolution was a few years away. There was turmoil and strife in the air everywhere. But not in this movie. Yes, it is about Tolstoy and his life but didn't he live in a world in upheaval that pushed his philosophy? Wasn't there a context??? Not in this movie. This movie was like watching a story that takes place in 1775 without any mention of the revolution about to take place with no mention of the mood of the people. Though this is my main gripe I have others. Overacting, poor story writing among others. This could have been a great movie; the life of the people populating it were of a grand scale. But this movie doesn't do it. It is more of a soap opera than anything else, with people shouting and crying and falling down. What about the literature. Hardly a mention. Don't waste your time; read the books!
