In Tolstoy's timeless epic of love and loss, a circle of aristocrats finds their glittering world crumbling as war threatens imperial Russia. This magnificent international production was filmed in six European countries by Oscar®-nominated directorrt Dornhelm.Set during the years of Napoleon's invasion of Russia, War And Peace follows the changing fortunes of brooding military hero Prince Andrej (Alessio Boni, Caravaggio), his bookish friend Pierre (Alexander Beyer, Good Bye Lenin!), and the spirited but naïve Natasha (Clémence Poésy, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire). As Napoleon's armies menace their privileged lives, the horrors of the battlefield reach into the elegant ballrooms and bedrooms of Moscow.
