"The film was quite good and gave a nice twist to a well known story by placing it in the context of a theatre. By implication it seemed to be saying that Anna could have an affair but the idea of divorce and not going back to her husband was breaking the conventions accepted by members of the szarist upperclasses. However I agree with the other comments made setting it in a theatre over rode any considerations of making the characterisation more powerrful and less excessively symbolic. From what I have read of Tolstoy he did seriously believe in the virtues of concentrated hard work and also in some senses marriage although his creutzers sonata is not repesentative of the last attitude."
