Re: FIRST LOOK: Keira Knightley is Anna Karenina

Just felt like pointing out this random factoid:

A paperback edition of Anna Karenina was recently released in my b00tifull kawntree, and the editors went for a film tie-in for the cover, choosing an image of Anna Karenina from a film. Yet it wasn't Knightley they picked.



So beautiful it hurts.

Extremely so.

Anna Karenina is so much more than she can offer. Vivien Leigh was much better.

Having said that, I still feel that the story of Anna Karenina is very difficult to film for modern younger audiences, and this version added nothing new.

Re: FIRST LOOK: Keira Knightley is Anna Karenina

The film is FINALLY shown in HK and I saw it this evening. I just can't with Count Vronsky I am afraid and some dialogues are pretty bad (Particularly the picnic scene ) The mise-en-scene isn't that bad as I imagined (yeah, still a bit over the top but at least it is MUCH smoother than I expected)

I am not sure if those audiences who haven't read the book would understand the film though.

Ch 18, Part 1; "her rather full figure"

Is Chrisitina Hendricks too full? Umm, the novel says she's not that pretty, so..maybe Julianne Moore in her younger days?
The problem is that our ideas about what makes a woman beautiful have changed over the centuries.

Film is a visual art. It's an interpretation of another medium in the visual form. And a 21st century visual interpretation at that.

What the filmmakers get right with casting Keira and from the reviews of Keira's performance is that she embodies the psychological vulnerability and the worldliness and charm of the character. That imo is more important than the physical correctness.

This isn't a biopic. People in the 21st century don't look like people in the 19th century. I don't see why we should try to look like them. It's about capturing the spirit.
