• The famous actress in the role of Anna Karenina
A few days ago I started showing Russian drama "Anna Karenina" with Elizabeth Boyar in the title role. This novel by Leo Tolstoy is one of the most ekraniziruemyh works of Russian literature. In total there are more than 25 films, based on the book. Today, we have gathered the seven most brilliant actresses who try on the image of Anna Karenina.
The first sound film adaptation of "Anna Karenina" in 1935 the role of the main character went to "snow queen of Hollywood" Greta Garbo. By the way, it is already having in place a mute Karenina in the film adaptation of 1927. A second version with the actress recognized as the best foreign film at the Venice Film Festival. In general, the image created by Greta Garbo, is sympathetic, but does not have the change of heart, which can be traced in the literary image of Leo Tolstoy.
The film in 1948 with Vivien Leigh became an alternative for those viewers who play Greta Garbo seemed too artsy. The actress added to the image Karenina poignancy and warmth. Vivien Leigh, even started to learn the Russian language, trying to understand the desires and actions of her character.
The most recognizable image of Anna Karenina, not only for domestic but also for foreign audience created Tatiana Samoilova in the film adaptation of Alexander Zarkhi in 1967. The director made the film exactly by the book. On the role of the protagonist claimed the first beauty of the time - Elina Bystritskaya, Lyudmila Chursina, Tatiana Doronin, but Alexander chose Zarkhi Samoilov. Her dark eyes and hair, pale skin blended well with the aristocratic image Karenina, Leo Tolstoy described. After the incredible success at the Cannes Film Festival film "The Cranes Are Flying", where the main role performed Samoilova, foreign producers have offered the actress to star in a Hollywood version of "Anna Karenina" is paired with actor Gerard Philipe. But the leaders of the State Cinema Committee was not allowed to shoot Samoilov, leading foreign colleagues ridiculous excuses and arguments.
In 1985, Hollywood came another film adaptation of "Anna Karenina" with Jacqueline Bisset in the title role. Actress looked much older literary image. In general, it has managed to convey aristocratic manners Karenina, its loftiness, restraint. With regard to the internal emotional experiences, critics agreed that Karenin Bisset-turned-mystery woman.
Another Hollywood version of "Anna Karenina", directed by Bernard Rose, published in 1997. Starring Sophie Marceau was. The viewer can not help but draw created entourage: All the shooting took place in Russia. The action takes place against the background of the Hermitage, the Mariinsky Palace and other monuments of architecture of the northern capital.
Many critics have very flattering things about the game Sophie Marceau, despite the fact that in the film a lot of inconsistencies with the novel Tolstoy. The actress later admitted in an interview that she was not sure she felt her character, who left the child for the sake of her lover.
In 2012 cinema screens left the British version of "Anna Karenina" with Keira Knightley in the title role. Thanks to the costumes and spectacular scenery, the film turned out beautiful, but too adaptable. The actress also looks modern. If you step back and forget about the fact that the basis of films should be based on Tolstoy's novel, the film can be watched with pleasure.
Again, the Russian version of "Anna Karenina" was released. Directed by Karen Shakhnazarov tried to move away from the usual clichés and show their vision of the novel by Leo Tolstoy. Starring Elizabeth Boyar. The film was launched on Russian TV April 17, 2017. And the audience once again have the opportunity to recall the story line of the novel and, of course, compare the acting.
