Screen adaptations of Anna Karenina: intermedia parallels
In our Bachelor’s thesis we analyze American, Russian and British screen adaptations of Leo Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina”. Our aim is to identify the similarities and distinctions of different interpretations of classical novel by cinematic means of expressiveness on the basis of different cultural contexts and audience requests. In our research we examine the process of interaction of arts – cinema and literature, then reveal the features of cinematic narrative. After, we turn to the theory of intermediality, using the term "remediation" as a subsidiary in a given context. Based on the each adaptation analysis of “Anna Karenina”, we are able to draw intermedia parallels between three films directed by Bernard Rose (1997), Russian director Sergei Solovyov and British director Joe Wright (2012).
