“..the signal achievement of this version of "Anna Karenina" is that it manages to use a world literary classic as the platform for nothing less than the longest Chanel ad ever..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..it's a nervy performance, acutely attuned to the volcanic changes a naive creature must enjoy and endure on her first leap into mad passion..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
“..is well-placed to gain admiring awards looks, especially in craft categories, but its covert anti-romanticism may limit appeal beyond specialty auds..”

by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
