    Brief synopsis

    Anna and Kitty. Two lives. One of desperate passion that ends in tragedy, the other, an existence made real through love. Two destinies that interweave, giving rise to two, so very different stories, yet lived in pursuit of the same desire- to find a love that lets them fully be themselves, to live without having to conform to society’s pretences.

    One of the greatest love stories ever written.

    After dozens of film and television adaptations, the story of Anna Karenina is seen through a whole new light, with the revival of parts of the novel that are often overlooked.
    The passionate story of two women, Anna and Kitty, the tragedy and realization of a touching and imperfect joy, sentiments and reason, extraordinary love and everyday love finally interwoven in this original, all-time saga- Anna Karenina.

    An international co-production, immersed in the uncontaminated landscapes of Lithuania and Latvia, with an international cast from Italy, Germany, France and Spain, directed by Christian Duguay, the Canadian director who has directed some of Lux Vide’s recent successful miniseries including Coco Chanel, Augustine: The decline of the Roman Empire and Cinderella.

    Characters like Levin, Karenin, Seriozha, Vronsky, Dolly and Stiva give us an indelible representation about the truth of love, marriage, separation, children and, most of all, they will make us think about the meaning of our own existence.
