There
are a lot things you will be able to see in the movie Anna Karenina. It is not
really not an art work, it is more like a piece of life – a reality. It is in a
straight forward manner. One of Anna’s fault in the movie is being selfish,
yes. But that what makes us human, it makes Anna a character that we all can
relate to, not just woman but also man. We do all become selfish at some point
in our life, even if we don’t want to. We just have to. People only see the
world through our eyes. Whatever you do, they will judge you. But even so you
have that perspective in life that sometimes you just got to not care about
what others think. We still always seek for empathy and understanding of other.
We are fallible, imperfect, and that’s what makes us interesting.

 

It
brings you a face to face about life with your fears, greatest loves, troubles,
and things that might happen in life. It gives you an understanding about life.
A book about people and human condition. The movie is about a tragic love
affair between Anna and Vronsky. The movie focuses about the rise and fall of
the strong feminine figure. It’s about her weakness about someone she loves; a
weakness that we all can relate to. In addition of their love affair, there is
also an affair between Levin and Kitty. Levin who shares same thoughts and
beliefs Tolstoy himself. Levin questions the meaning of life, his own spiritual
beliefs, or lack thereof. He even contemplates suicide. But true to the
strength of a one of Tolstoy’s character, Levin triumphs, coming up from even
the lowest of lows, and finds love in the mild and tender Kitty. Actually a lot
of can relate to Levin, when we really don’t know what is our worth. What is
there about life? I do, myself also think of this things and it really makes
you frustrated almost all the time.

 

Anna
Karenina is sometimes too intricate, too sensational, too overwhelming with
long thought; it’s unmanageable because of its structure and hard to follow
dialogues, you just sometimes don’t understand what she is pertaining too. We
are like that sometimes there where thoughts and ideas that we only ourselves
can understand. But it still sticks with the human experience. It contains a
lot of lessons and gives you new outlook in life. She is a young woman that
could really commit some things. Well we all actually do, even older people.
Some lessons though have to be learned the hard way, really. A story of love
found and lost – and a level of gender-based social injustice that should set
feminist people of fume.

Tolstoy
really investigates the nature of female beauty and the whole objectification
of women. In a way that he is ahead of his time because these are questions that
really only come to the fore in the last few decades as feminism. Questions you
can have it all as a woman. Something like can you be married? Can you be a
thinking woman who has a career in her own right? Being stuck in being able to
live in a truthful life. I am not a feminist. But through this movie, I’ve felt
various things. Well really actually this movies gives you that things. It was
way to unfair for the women before. I actually admire her for her courage about
facing the society that is judging her. There are only few people who actually
stand for themselves. I admired her for fighting and for not neglecting what
she really want and what she really feel. Because, I most of the time neglect
things like something that I wanted to fight for but chooses to just stay quiet
and keep it for myself. There are a lot of different things that already have
change in the movie if you compare it in this modern day. But we can’t deny
that there is still inequality in our society. I do agree that men and woman really
differ in so many things. But in our modern day, woman can really show that
there are thing that we can do that the man can do. In addition, there are also
things that only can woman level up than man. I was really grateful that society
gave the chance to us.
Even though it quite took that long for them to accept and understand. Although
infidelity is looked upon as an act of dishonor, the man and woman‘s infidelity
really in this movie shows that there are still big difference until now. Society
looks the other way when men succumb to its powers, unlike woman, men continue
to keep their marriage, power over his wife and children, job and their place
in society goes unvarnished. It is so ironic when a man committed in
infidelity, the society can easily accept it while when a woman commit
something like this, the society called Anna a ‘slut’. She was forced to be a
mistress because Karenin refuse to give her a divorce. She wasn’t able to
contact her son and was told that she is dead. She has nothing. In losing him,
she loses everything, and it is no wonder that she commits suicide in the end
of the story. A woman in her day, having lost her place in society, her role as
a wife and a mother, she cannot sustain herself. She gave everything up for
love, passion, herself, desires, but no one gave anything up for her. She dies
tragically, while everyone around her continues to move on without her. Anna is
shamed for her behavior.
