Bondarchuk took nearly five years to make this eight hour epic adaptation of Tolstoy's novel, writing the screenplay as well as starring in it. Winning the Best Foreign Film Oscar in 1968, 'War and Peace' shows how Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812 affected the lives of two upper class families, centering on the love between Pierre and his vivacious young cousin Natasha, married to army officer, Andrei.
