Storyline

During the First World War, the Russian officer Captain Ivan Ignatoff falls in love with his nurse, Natasha Kovrin. But she is subject to an upcoming marriage of family convenience to Brioukow, a wealthy industrialist of peasant stock. Brioukow is unjustifiably jealous, since Natasha has not betrayed him. He forces Ignatoff into his debt as a means of humiliating him. When Ignatoff's new friend, Madame Sabline, offers to pay his debt, preventing his ruin, Ignatoff comes quickly to realize that Madame Sabline has an ulterior motive, one that could prove dangerous to more lives than just Ignatoff's.

A choice between a dashing officer and a Rasputin-like greybeard!
20 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

It takes place in Moscow (check the title) during WW1 (1916,to be precise)!But it's a chocolate box city and who could believe the Russian people were really waging war?Who could believe they were on the eve of revolution? Forget history ,and you have a romantic story which could happen anywhere .Natacha (Annabella)'s fiancé is not what we call a handsome man (Harry Baur) but he soaked up all her family's debts.She 's a nurse in a military hospital and she falls in love with an officer (Pierre Richard- Wilm).But alas,he is mistaken for a spy and only his rival can save him during his trial.

Annabella is gorgeous but rather bland and Harry Baur ,left to his own devices,overacts ,probably inspired by Rasputin and his orgies.Richard-Wilm is not very good either.But the story ,adapted from one of Pierre Benoit's ("l'Atlantide" ) extravaganzas ,is fairly entertaining.
