I have not watched the series. The cinema went without much expectations, just wanted to see something in the cinema. The plot was quite lengthy, and as if was evident that the crowd of wounded both a realistic and unnecessary. But then came Vronsky -aged Matveev, and then I looked at the screen not with an expression of proscapes, and I was curious and pleasant to watch movie. The story, told as if from the outside Vronsky does not seem far-fetched, and perfectly woven into the plot. The actor’s lines faulty, but at the same time without the feeling of hypocrisy. The scene in the theater when Vronsky can neither defend nor even approach Anne in my opinion very strong. Boyarsky good and harmonious. For my taste Karenin here, the way Tolstoy wrote it. The ending is blurred, and it turns out that Anna under the train the result of a fleeting tantrum, time has not prevented Vronsky, but who said that the Director is not entitled to such a reading, besides, it’s Vronsky’s glance, and not how it really is. In General, the film worth viewing and understanding.
