Christopher Reeve plays Count Vronsky in the most chilling role of his career
23 November 2003 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

When Count Vronsky, played by Christopher Reeve, falls off his horse in the race scene I shiver; knowing that is how that fine young man was later incapacitated in real life. It is absolutely chilling!! This is not the greatest adaptation of the novel Anna Karenina but it is certainly the most memorable due to the fate of the actor!!
