"A poor film that rushes through hundreds of pages of the novel with no explanation. People appear and disappear with no reference to why they may be relevant, or not.
Knightley gives her one look of depair / shame/ hut and she is just wrong as Anna and don't even get me started on Johnson who has all the depth of a puddle.
A literary great reduced almost to Mills and Boon standards. If you want to see how an epic russian novel should be filmed go see Doctor Zhivago not this."
