War & Peace – Part 1

(Voyna i mir)

Re-issue of the epic Soviet film experience! Members can see all 4 parts for just $24!

Now digitally restored and re-issued in its full length, War & Peace is a landmark in epic-scale filmmaking.

Poster for the re-issue of Bondarchuk's epic War & PeaceAt the height of the Cold War, the Soviet film industry set out to prove it could outdo Hollywood with a production that would dazzle the world: a titanic, awe-inspiring adaptation of 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 techniques, Sergei Bondarchuk conjures a sweeping vision of grand balls that glitter with rococo beauty, and breathtaking battles that overwhelm with their expressionistic power. As a statement of Soviet cinema’s might, War & Peace succeeded wildly, garnering the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and setting a new standard for epic moviemaking.
