War and Peace

Thu., April 25, 7:30 p.m., Fri., April 26, 7:30 p.m., Sat., April 27, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., April 28, 7:30 p.m.

Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace is an all-consuming novel about the entirety of love, life, war and death, all set against the magnificent backdrop of early-nineteenth-century Russia. As Napoleon invades the country, the misogynistic Prince Andrei and his social misfit friend Pierre Bezukhov interact with their large cast of friends and rivals as everybody prepares to deal with the war. People fall in and out of love, fortunes are lost and life grows grim for many.

Sergei Bondarchuk spent six years making the four installments of his film adaptation and suffered two heart attacks during the process. He emerged with a truly monumental seven-hour film that employed thousands of actors (12,000 alone in the epic Battle of Borodino set piece), as well as valuable artifacts and props loaned by Russian museums, all of which give the film a sweep and verisimilitude worthy of the source material. The Webster Film Series presents a recently restored version of Bondarchuk's War and Peace, Part I at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25, in Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; www.webster.edu/film-series). Parts II through IV will be shown on successive nights through Sunday, April 28. Tickets are $5 to $7 per film, and a $15 punch pass good for all four installments is also available.
