Only die-hard romantics are likely not to come away disappointed.

Bloodless and shallow adaptation.

This sleek, Cliffs Notes version of a masterpiece is ... glossy and picture perfect on the surface and hollow at the core.

When [Anna and Vronsky] first lay eyes on each other at the train station in St. Petersburg, the only steam between them comes from the engine.

Like its opening, Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina is half-successful.

In Sophie Marceau ... [Rose] has a fine young Anna.

Sumptuous cinematography, glorious sets and costumes dominate throughout the film.

Provided you have a burning interest in pretty visuals and less regard for the whys and wherefores of human behavior, this latest adaptation of Tolstoy's classic is a pleasant watch.
