Nicola Pagett stars as Anna Karenina in this classic BBC adaptation of Leo Tolstoy s epic tale of passion set in late nineteenth century Russia. Anna is young, vivacious, beautiful and resigned to a loveless marriage of convenience to a man twenty years her senior. She moves in the highest circles of Czarist Russia and believes herself to be invulnerable to temptation. But her life changes dramatically when she meets Count Vronksy who awakens her dormant passion and changes her life with ultimately tragic consequences. New look packaging for 2012

makes the book read fantastic. It is more enjoyable when you realise some of the characters are loosley based
persons who lived in the 1800's -I believe Anna's character is based on one of Pushkins (the great Russian poet) children - Maria.
So this great Novel, was shot by the BBC in the time when the budgets (just) allowed for period dramas to be made, during the 1970s' (yes that is over 30years ago!) AND IT IS ONE OF THE BEST!
As it is a period Drama it is ageless, the Actors and their acting were the best and if you are like myself who have a selection of DVD's which I review regularly, this should one of them. In fact I re-purchased this so I could get the set of three dvds together again [my mother or my wife (both who deny this!) sat one one of the DVD's and broke it in half - they then hid it - for them I say -> the truth will always be found].
All the cast are excellent, whether in the major roles (Anna, Vronsky, Karenin) or the lesser but still important parts (Levin, Stiva, Prince Scherbatsky etc). The only jarring note is that Stuart Wilson, otherwise a consummate Vronsky (you can quite see why Anna falls for him - and why it's all going to end in tears), is no horseman. This is awkward, because Vronsky is supposed to be a steeplechase rider, and it also stands out because of all the attention to detail elsewhere.
This is a must own serial if you like a quality script, superb acting and plenty of food for thought. It is not for those looking for lots of action. This is about people and their relationships.
There is something in it for everyone. The costumes are breathtakingly beautiful. The hero and heroine are gorgeous and romantic. Most of all I appreciate the faithfulness to the text which the BBC approached in the making of this series. They did not decide like too many others since that they know more than the writer and butcher Tolstoy's work and quality with ruthless and irresponsible editing. I am delighted that this version has been restored and made available. Buy and enjoy.
