Summary, etc.:
A titanic, awe-inspiring adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's classic tome in which the fates of three souls: the blundering, good-hearted Pierre; the heroically tragic Prince Andrei; and the radiant, tempestuous Natasha, collide amid the tumult of the Napoleonic Wars. Employing a cast of thousands and an array of innovative camera techniques, the director conjures a sweeping vision of grand balls that glitter with rococo beauty and breathtaking battles that overwhelm with their expressionistic power.
