Anna Karenina

Not Yet Rated| 1 hr. 25 min.

Plot Summary
The Bolshoi Ballet's interpretation of Leo Tolstoy's classic novel is artfully captured in Russian cinematographer Margarita Pilihina's sole outing as a director. The story of the aristocratic Anna and her socially ruinous affair with the brash and fickle soldier Vronsky (Alexander Godunov) is here set to music by Rodion Shchedrin, and choreographed by Maya Plisetskaya, who also dances the lead as Anna. Psychological depth makes up for the inevitable narrative shortcuts.

Cast: Maya Plisetskaya , Alexander Godunov , Vladimir Tikhonov , Nina Sorokina , Valery Levintal , Lev Statland ,
