Penguin Random House: Anna Karenina

A trailer for Tolstoy's seminal Russian novel, Anna Karenina, created for Penguin Random House.

The trailer juxtaposes the sound of a train gaining momentum with images of sophisticated social settings. The objects in the theatre, dinner party, and bedroom dressing table start to rattle and crash, as if the train is coming to destroy Anna's elegant way of life.
