War and Peace movie review & film summary (1969) | …

The cinema lends itself magnificently to spectacle, and "War and Peace" is great cinema. It is as spectacular as a movie can possibly be and yet it has a human fullness. Considering its cost and the vast effort that went into its making, such a film can be made only once in our time. The wonder, indeed, is that it was made at all. Romance History

And so it is with WAR AND PEACE: it's hard to suspend disbelief when soldiers struggling across a river sound like someone dropping quarters into a toilet. The other shortcoming is the appalling miscasting of Henry Fonda as Pierre Bezhukov. It's the worst performance of his career, and he looks and sounds about as Russian as a slice of pumpkin pie.

War and Peace (Penguin Classics): Leo Tolstoy, Anthony ...

War and Peace is as much an historical treatise as it is a novel and I became as engaged in the story of the Napoleonic war in Russia as in the lives of the principal characters. At over 1400 pages long, this book may seem daunting but I urge anyone to read it, and like me, you may find it the one of the most rewarding book you will ever read.

War and Peace - A Concise Review and Summary. An infamously thick book, War and Peace is described by Tolstoy himself as being too big to be considered a novel.
