Critic Reviews for Anna Karenina
This version of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, made A.G. (After Garbo), was not a success when it was first released, and it's still a failure now, but it's an often exquisitely sumptuous misfire, all the same.
Audience Reviews for Anna Karenina
I know there are several versions of this movie and this is the only one I have seen. Ahhhhh.....Vivien Leigh, beautiful, airy and charming and then goes a little crazy from guilt over her love affair. This is a tragic story of love, passion and adultery, well acted and very enjoyable. Ralph Richardson is perfect as the stuffy, self important, preoccupied husband. Well done.
this movie was great...she was kind of a disterbed women she just packed up and left her husband who was more than willing to forgive her and take her back when she thought she was dieing and then when she got well just left her husband and her son to be with her lover...her husband tried to do wut was right and tried to be the bigger man...but she was just i dont even know how to describe it i loved this movie
leigh's anna has gotten some hard knocks because of garbo's double success with the role. her anna is different and this film is a sumptuous setting for it.
