“A lavish adaptation of the Tolstoy classic” —The Guardian (U.K.)
Passion, secrets, and betrayal
In Tolstoy’s timeless epic of love and loss, a circle of aristocrats finds their glittering world crumbling as war threatens imperial Russia. This magnificent international production was filmed on location in Saint Petersburg by Oscar®-nominated director Robert Dornhelm.
Set during Napoleon’s invasion of Russia, War and Peace follows the changing fortunes of brooding military hero Prince Andrej (Alessio Boni, Caravaggio), his bookish friend Pierre (Alexander Beyer, Good Bye Lenin!), and the spirited but naïve Natasha (Clémence Poésy, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire). As Napoleon’s armies menace their privileged lives, the horrors of the battlefield reach into the elegant ballrooms and bedrooms of Moscow.
Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), Brenda Blethyn (Little Voice), and Ken Duken (Inglourious Basterds) also star in this sumptuous adaptation of one of the world’s greatest novels.
