You can't compare this seven-hour Soviet masterpiece with an expensive Hollywood movie. War and Peace, which was made in 1968, is not related to Titanic or The Ten Commandments. Those are private projects, not state programs. Because the Soviet government paid for this incredibly huge and powerful interpretation of Tolstoy's longest novel, it must be compared with the Apollo 11 moon mission. Both have this as their purpose: to express the strength and mind of the state. (SIFF Cinema at McCaw Hall, 321 Mercer St, 633-7151.
