Goofs

The near-ending scene where the family is laughing about unflattering photos taken of them and reading letters from their relatives, friends and teachers has Nicholas saying "in a 'month or two'" as when "Mama" (Nicholas'; the Queen Mother) would be off to England in. Actually, Marie Feodorovna didn't go to England until 1919, the year after the family's July 1918 deaths. See more »

Quotes

Alexander Kerensky: The Bolsheviks have taken over the station, the telegraphs, the banks? If we had loyal troops, how many would it take to dislodge them?
General Alexeiev: One regiment would be enough. But we haven't got a regiment! At least, not one we can trust.

I do not understand the reservations
4 August 2002 | by (Bamberg, Germany) – See all my reviews

It may have something to do with the fact that I was at Princeton at the same time as the screenwriter's hemophiliac son, but everyone seems to be falling over themselves in finding fault with this nearly perfect movie. Tom Baker didn't "fade into obscurity," he became the most famous Doctor Who. The principals are exemplary and totally true to every historic account I've read. One commentator mentions inanely that Nikolaus was a cousin of King George while Alexandra was a granddaughter of Queen Victoria. Excuse me folks, we all know that. It makes them first cousins, which is one of the reasons the heir to all the Russias had a deadly hereditary disease. (Nikolaus, George V, and Kaiser Wilhelm were all first cousins.) This movie knocks one out with its combination of costume drama and realism. I don't make ten favorites lists but if I did it might be there. An absolute must see, over and over again.
