The second part of Bondarchuks epic adaptation opens in 1807 as Napoleon and Tsar Alexander negotiate in Tilsit. Meanwhile, far from the world of politics, young Natasha attends a grand ball, waltzes with Prince Andrei, and is soon engaged to him. However, his protracted absence leaves the emotionally volatile Natasha vulnerable. The film features a remarkable wolf-hunting sequence where Bondarchuks subjective camera is taken to its extreme: even the wolf gets a POV shot.
