    Excellent miniseries

    |
    Posted .

    I watched this on cable before the Blu-Ray set was available and bought it as soon as it came out. I believe this is by far the best film/TV treatment of War and Peace. The acting is consistently excellent and so are the production values. There were enough battle scenes to make it realistic, but most of the story takes place away from the actual fighting itself. The actor who plays Pierre is the first actor I have seen who makes the part believable. His naivete is offset by his good heart, so instead of finding him annoying (which can happen even when you're reading the book), he comes across the way Tolstoy probably wanted him to, as a decent person who evolves over time. The Blu-Ray set has 2 discs, each with 4 episodes. The second disc also has 5 short extras. Image and audio quality are excellent .

    When it was on TV I was not going to watch it. However I tuned in just to see what it was like and I was hooked. You feel as if you are a part of it. I could,hardly wait for,the next episode. The nice part about the Blue Ray Collection is no commercials. The country side views are breath taking. As well as the Mansions and locations. If you have not seen this mini series then don't miss your chance. You will,enjoy it.

    Well Acted and High Budget

    If you like the Napoleonic Era or Imperial Russia this show is for you. The novel is a masterpiece, but not everyone has the patience to read one and a half pages describing a glove worn by one of the characters. This mini-series is longer than the Audrey Hepburn movie version but it is hard for me to say which version I prefer. A historian would not be disappointed with this version.

    Engrossing adaptation

    I really liked this expansive take on the Tolstoy novel. The cast is fine and production values are first-rate. Much better than the limp TV version of a few years back, though less compelling than the classic Russian feature film of the late 60s. Use it as a springboard for tackling the massive novel at long last.

    This British miniseries does a very good job of presenting Tolstoy's novel War and Peace. The acting is very good, and the scenery and costumes added to the realistic portrayal of Imperial Russia in the Napoleonic Era. I strongly recommend this miniseries to anyone interested in Tolstoy's novel or who enjoys historical fiction.

    You will be hard-pressed not to watch all 8 episoodes in one sitting. The cinematography is amazing, the character development is great, and the pace keeps you wanting to know what is going to happen. You do feel for the characters. It is an excellent adaptation of Tolstoy's War & Peace.

    An amazing period drama

    I'm so glad I bought this Blu Ray miniseries. It's the best historical drama I've seen in years. The cinematography is beautiful -- lots of gorgeous palaces -- and although the series condenses a thousand-page book into about 7 hours, the episodes don't seem rushed, and the characters seem real.

    My wife and I have been watching PBS Masterpiece Theater and love epic series like this one. Character set, costumes, story line, unexpected turn outs, filing techniques, historical events (Napoleon I attacking Russia Austria)... everything is incredible!

    I got this on Black Friday at an AMAZING price. Came quickly and when I had an issue with the broken Blu Ray case Best Buy quickly sent me a replacement. I haven't watched the show yet, but I would definitely buy again if I needed another copy.

    Great adaptation. I love the miniseries format, especially for book adaptations like this. I had not caught the series on TV so kind of bought it blindly and hoped for the best, but was not disappointed!

    Period piece covers wars against Russia during Napoleon's reign. The periods of peace, her allies, and war with her enemies are covered in this abridged series. Well written and acted, beautifully filmed.

    It has everything you could want in a mini series. The book is very hard to understand, but the mini series shows me why the book is so highly regarded. The setting, acting, costumes, and music are amazing. Lastly, Paul Dano is easily the best actor you've never heard of.

    This movie is a remake of the original one in 1960's. I found it to be better with great picture in the blue ray format. The sceneries and acting are also wonderful. Highly recommended !!!

    This is the best film adaptation of War and Peace. It's a great miniseries with impressive acting. It would be even better with all the extra scenes from the BBC version.

    I must first admit that I am a sucker for these type of period pieces. I believe that this one particularly was really well done. I honestly could not find many faults with its adaptation.
