This gigantic motion picture epic, based on the novel of the same name by the great Russian writer Leo Tolstoy, has won worldwide critical acclaim. For the shooting of the film’s battle scenes, such as the Battle of Borodino or the 1812 Moscow fire, a regular army was mustered into service, as well as a specially created cavalry regiment. Over 120,000 soldiers participated as extras in the crowd scenes. More than 35,000 costumes were made for the production.
The details of 19th-century Russia’s everyday life, the period costumes, society and its traditions, the psychological characteristics and the heroism of the people, the glory of Russian arms – all this attracts the viewer not less than the love story of the delightful Natasha Rostova and the Prince Andrei Bolkonsky.
Awards: Grand Prize ex aequo and Diploma to Liudmila Savelyeva for Best Actress at the Moscow IFF, 1965; Honorary Diploma at the Venice IFF, 1965; Golden Globe and Oscar Awards for Best Foreign-Language Film in USA
