Storyline

1904. The Russian-Japanese War. Manchuria. Russian military hospital on the retreat stations in a half-destroyed Chinese village. The head of the hospital Sergey Karenin learns that the wounded officer Count Vronsky is the person who ruined his mother Anna Karenina. Harboring no illusions and expecting no answers, Karenin comes to Vronsky and asks him the question which has been tormenting him all his life: what made his mother cross the line? After some hesitation Vronsky agrees to tell the story of his tragic love for Anna Karenina, observing that people remember only what they choose to remember. Immersed in the past, Vronsky begins to reassess the story of thirty years ago and finally comes to realize that for many years he has been in the grip of the bygone events.

Protracted Russian adaptation.
5 November 2017 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

Lavishly staged feature version of the team's TV series. Costumes, imposing interior settings and performances are impressive and carry the piece about as far as it's Imperial horse race but Anna's declining relationship with Vronsky is dragged out interminably and the Manchurian framing story with the Chinese singing girl serves no purpose beyond further vindicating the poor chap.

Elizaveta Boyarskaya is authoritative and great looking but we loose sympathy with her mood shifts rapidly. The actress has been around for a while. She has a small part in the Oliver Hirschbiegel Der UNTERGANG / Downfall. For all her valiant efforts here she becomes the woman with those great changes of wardrobe. The new twists - minimising Vronsky's moving on Anna, a more sympathetic Karenin, giving Vronsky an extended story just weaken the adaptation.

It's doing festivals in an draggy 138 minute version.
