Technically well made - historically a catastrophe
Yes - it's Fun to SEE this movie. Costumes, Art Direction, Cinematography are really wonderful.
But historically it's a disaster. The Bad German Czar and his sad wife (the author seems to forgotten, she was a German too). The bad Czar was in real life an reformer. Intrigous were Catharine and Orloff - here they are shown as victims. But it's nothing new. Often in history the Kingslayer at the end shown as the heroes. But it makes nothing better.
The acting is all in all good, only the leading actress (she really looks bad here) is only cold and colorless. Mostly Raul Grassilli as Peter III. is really good.
This movie is only an anti-German history-fake. Sad, but true.
