The Kreutzer Sonata is a 2008 film directed by Bernard Rose based on an eponymous novella by Leo Tolstoy.

It is Rose's second collaboration with Danny Huston (after Ivans XTC) and his third adaptation of a work by Leo Tolstoy, following 1997's Anna Karenina and 2003's Ivans XTC.

"The Kreutzer Sonata" is the name commonly given to Ludwig van Beethoven's Violin Sonata no. 9 in A major. Director Bernard Rose had previously directed Immortal Beloved, a film on the life of Ludwig van Beethoven, in which there is a major (and pivotal) scene that features a performance of the Kreutzer Sonata.
