Anna Karenina: Film (Iman STOP crying!)

A bit like Sheldon Cooper and a lot like and old lady, yesterday I went to the cinema for my “Tuesday evening cinema night”.
I was probably the only under 40 in the all cinema, but that’s alright, people are kinder when you ask them to move seat because you cannot see !

Anyway, let’s go back to the topic: Anna Karenina by Joe Wright.
Let’s say it, if I didn’t have my Massimo cup of Costa’s hot chocolate, the movie could have killed me.
Normally I’m SO critic with everything (and everyone) but this time, this opera really got it right.

First of all the set is really well designed, the care for the details is amazing and the costumes are just sublime.Also the rhytme of the moving is pretty pressing, even if during the movie this slowly decrease.
No spoiler of course, but I love the cyclicality of the story.
Watch it and then you’ll know. 🙂

Keira Knightly is a stunning Anna, how much do I loved her performance? A LOT.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson is HOT, when you watch him you just cannot blame Anna. No woman could resist.

(What’s on earth is happening? Iman liking blonde guys? Help..)
Jude Law, a master as always. A master on showing us all the facets of his deep character.

Hope everybody knows :the film is inspired from the homonymous book by the great Leo Tolstoj and beside the poignant story of Anna, the novel is a stinging criticism to the 19th Century’s Russian high society. This in the movie is not always present, but when we see it, we will not quickly forget.

Certainly there are also some negative aspects, but as I spent half of the movie with my eyes full of tears and it does not happen that often, I have no complains to make.

I loved it. 8/10
