The classic novel by Leo Tolstoy comes to life in this sweeping, romantic epic, a tragic story of love, infidelity, and the destiny of a woman who irrevocably changes her life for the sake of passion. It concerns the struggle of a woman to find her place in Russian society. Anna (Tatiana Samoilova) is shunned by society when she leaves her older husband and small son for the dashing young cavalry officer Vronsky (Vassili Lanovai). The officer is torn between his love for Anna and his social and military responsibilities.

In Russian with English subtitles.
