This is the best, most faithful to the book, version of War and Peace available.
I see a previous reviewer is complaining about lack of scenery and music. Don't worry about it, the sparseness helps you concentrate on the very human scenes and the dialogue. I never missed the visuals. Don't get me wrong, there are still very ornate interiors, but if you concentrate on the story everything will become timeless anyway. A sure sign of my being moved is that I went out and purchased the Norton Critical Edition of the novel. I can't wait to begin.

Could not believe how bad this "War & Peace" is!!
Mostly dialogs in a very tight English, and the whole thing is way..way too long, could be reduced to 40% running time!! Read more

Only Russian could really interpret "War and Peace" correctly. Go to see the film made by Soviet Union at 1967.Published on Nov. 19 2002
