The entire movie was unbelievable because of the way it was shot. Couldn't connect to the characters because I was too busy watching the annoying stage production happening in a FILM!!!

Anna Kareniina - Not Enough of a Movie

While Anna Karenina was visually stunning, the entire movie seemed disjointed. Keira Knightley and the rest of the cast performed beautifully, but I think the filmakers made a big mistake in making this movie only 2 1/2 hours long. The Leo Tolstoy book is over 800 pages and it seems like a lot was left out that would have developed the characters better and made the plot less confusing.

Unique setting/presentation and well done!!

My daughter and I went to see this over the weekend and we both enjoyed it alot. At times I laughed, but mostly I was drawn into the dramatic presentation of the story! The costumes and jewelry were exquisite and stunning!! It was unique in that some of the setting was done as a stage effect. I have never seen any other movie done this way. And there were a few parts that seemed like a musical. Keira Knightly gave an excellent performance! I have never read the book or seen other movie adaptations of the story. I was impressed by this one though and will most likely buy the movie for my collection when it comes out as a dvd. I say "definitely go see it!"

Beautiful soundtrack

It’s a very mature and well-composed piece of music. A little repetitive in some places, but the film convention somehow forced the narrowing to mostly the waltz music. You can listen to it here: [BLOCKED WEBSITE]

Anna Karenina

The placing of the movie in a theater became increasingly irrelevant and was even rather irritating. But the acting was good all round and the film was enjoyable. I liked it more than my husband did. Definitely not a kids movie.
