featuring

Sergei Bondarchuk, Lyudmila Savelyeva, Vyacheslav Tikhonov, Boris Zakhava,

The second part of Bondarchuk’s epic adaptation opens in 1807 as Napoleon and Tsar Alexander negotiate in Tilsit. Meanwhile, far from the world of politics, young Natasha attends a grand ball, waltzes with Prince Andrei, and is soon engaged to him. However, his protracted absence leaves the emotionally volatile Natasha vulnerable. The film features a remarkable wolf-hunting sequence where Bondarchuk’s subjective camera is taken to its extreme: even the wolf gets a POV shot.
