Film Description

In this BBC two-parter, Alan Yentob takes an epic train ride through Tolstoy's Russia, examining how Russia's great novelist became her great troublemaker.

In At War with Himself, Yentob reveals a difficult and troubled youth, obsessed with sex and gambling, who turned writer while serving as a soldier in Chechnya and the Crimea. His experiences on the frontline eventually fed into War and Peace, and triggered his conversion to outspoken pacifist.

In Search of Happiness looks at the success of War and Peace, which brought Tolstoy fame, wealth - and a massive mid-life crisis. Yentob follows the writer through the tortured second half of his life as he transformed himself from aristocrat to anarchist and turned his back on his novels, his possessions and finally his wife of 48 years.
