One of the most passionate love stories of all times has been reduced to a few badly placed sound bites. Judd Law does his best, but there is only so much that this great actor can do with so very little to work with! Rent the original!!

Anna Karenina

By carolyne00

The beginning was a little choppy, but once I figured out what the director was going for, it got better. I was so mad at Keira Knightley, she was playing games with both men. The things she said to her husband enraged me, which means it was well done. Jude Law had such a range, I wouldn't have know it was him, if I had read up on it. He really made me care about him. Good Movie!

Powerful story presented in an unique way

Did not read Tolstoy's book but the movie presented a powerful emotional story. But it was presented in a unique way which I found somewhat distracting and seemed to lessen the impact for me. But it is definitely worth seeing.

A surreal reimagining of a classic story

By medprofdavid
Written July 29, 2014
A brilliant and captivating reimagining of the novel, blurring the lines of fantasy and reality as only Tom Stoppard can. But be aware before you go that this is not a typical movie epic. It is a surreal rendition of Anna Karenina that mysteriously blends elements of opera, ballet, musical theater, tableau vivant, and impressionist painting.

Weird Format - Hard to Follow

By libdev
Written December 19, 2014
I did not care for the format of the movie as a performance within a performance. It made it confusing and I often could not tell whether it was really happening or just in the imagination of the characters. Kiera Knightly was outstanding as was Jude Law. The costumes were amazing! I liked it, but some parts were slow and I was a bit confused with the format.
