Anna Karenina perfectly captures the look and flavor of 1880s Russia, but it's dreadfully hollow in every other respect. Tolstoy's Anna burned with passion; Marceau's Anna sleepwalks through the entire film. Equally bland is her affair with Count Vronsky (Bean). Anna risked everything for the scandalous relationship; the filmmakers should have felt the same intensity.
