War and Peace

Saturday 05 June 2010, 22:00

A rare public screening of perhaps the most spectacular and expensive movie of all time. Five years in the making and with the Red Army mobilised to recreate Napoleon's battles exactly as they happened. Perhaps what is extraordinary about War and Peace is that Bondarchuk was able to take Tolstoy's novel and somehow transform it into this great work of film, balancing the spectacular, the human and the intellectual.
Dir. Sergei Bondarchuk, USSR 1967, 7hr 30m with intervals

In association with Bristol Festival of Ideas.
