Tolstoy s language preserved in Anna Karenina : Director

Friday - December 8, 2017 2:16 am , Category : ART & LITERATURE

New Delhi Dec 8 (IANS) Oscar-nominated filmmaker Karen Shakhnazarov says he has tried to retain the context of Leo Tolstoy s 19th century novel "Anna Karenina" in the film adaptation while adding "something special".



Produced and directed by Shakhnazarov the Russian film is a tragic story of Countess Anna Karenina a married noblewoman and socialite and her affair with the affluent Count Vronsky.

"The whole world knows the Russian literature thanks to Anna Karenina . There were a lot of adaptations but no example for me in this. I made the version carefully preserving the language of Tolstoy but bringing to the film something special " Shakhnazarov told IANS.

"I made films of different genres but never so closely approached the topic of relationship between a man and a woman. Nothing better has ever been written or will ever be written about relationships between men and women. The relationship between a man and a woman lies at the heart of our lives; everything else - politics art - is secondary " he added.

The film brought to India by RG Studios will release in the country in English and Hindi on Friday.

Shakhnazarov feels the film will allow a viewer "to look at the novel in new ways while retaining unchanged the text of Tolstoy".
