We pay tribute to the great work of Leo Tolstoy, in the centenary of his death, with a rare public screening of perhaps the most spectacular and expensive movie of all times: five years in the making at a cost of $100,000,000, a cast of 120,000, and 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.
We expect the film to be scheduled as follows (please check this page or Arnolfini’s website for updates):
14.30 Part one (2hrs 26mins)
17.00 Interval – 15mins
17.15 Part two (1hr 39mins)
