    At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet film industry set out to prove it could out do Hollywood with a production that would dazzle the world: a titanic, aweinspiring adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's classic tome in which the fates of three souls the blundering, goodhearted Pierre; the heroically tragic Prince Andrei; and the radiant, tempestuous Natasha collide amid the tumult of the Napoleonic Wars. Employing a cast of thousands and an array of innovative camera techniques, director Sergei Bondarchuk conjures a sweeping vision of grand balls that glitter with rococo beauty and breathtaking battles that overwhelm with their expressionistic power. As a statement of Soviet cinema's might, War and Peace succeeded wildly, garnering the Academy Award® for Best ForeignLanguage Film and setting a new standard for epic moviemaking.
