Too much surrealism.

I liked some of the acting, and the dialog was very good. But the surrealism I found distracting to the story. The music, costumes and cinematography were phenomenal, though.

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!!!

Not so sexy Vronsky!

Beautifully staged, with an operatic feel. Knightly and Law do a wonderful job but the casting of Taylor-Johnson was off the mark. Vronsky is supposed to be the man Anna would risk all for but Taylor-Johnson's effete young soldier didn't inspire passion as much as puzzlement. Why would Anna throw everything away for him? A little hard to follow at times, it helps if one has read the book.

Good, if there was hype, would not live up to it

Good movie. It was interesting to see Joe Wright's interpretation of the story. The way they did the party scenes was not what I expected, but AWESOME. At the beginning I thought, "I hope this isn't how the entire movie is," but I left feeling like I had just witnessed some creative genius. A little disappointed with the sex scene because I went in expecting something akin to Atonement's. If you're into costume and set design, it's definitely worth going just for that — it was beautiful! My boyfriend and I loved it, but we think others probably will not feel the same way. Not necessarily a "must-see", but if you have the time and means I believe it's not to be counted as "missable".

The most beautiful movie I have seen this season. Very very special....great acting......everything about it will show your real movie making that takes you on a trip back in time and book.
