Originally published in 1865-69, Tolstoy's panoramic study of early 19th-century Russian society is generally regarded as one of the world's greatest novels. A cast of thirty-five including Leo McKern as Kutuzov, Simon Russell Beale as Pierre Bezuhov, Emily Mortimer as Natasha Rostov and Gerard Murphy as Andrei Bolkonsky animate this epic masterpiece. Tolstoy's insights into human nature and reflections on the concepts of history and war give the novel a breadth and scope that are brought vividly to life in this unique, full-cast dramatization featuring more than two hours of specially composed music by Neil Brand.
"There remains the greatest of all novelists--for what else can we call the author of War and Peace?"
