After 20 years of a break i have rewatched this movie, cause it left a lasting iconic imagery with me of how Karenina and Vronsky are supposed to be. But rewatching it now was a disappointment. Such a stiff acting, and such an artificial build up of how the plot develops. Giving it 3 stars, only for the cinematic images it leaves. I prefer the naturalness of Sophie Marceau as Karenina in 1997 movie.
