This is a very good example of soviet detective stories. The story takes place in great Britain back in 19th century. We are shown the life of English highest society, where terrible things happen. The main character, radical and revolutionary Robert was poisoned in his own big house. Somebody very close to him is his killer, but the total mystery lies on Robert's death until a detective solves the dirty plans of an old lord, who seems to be able to do any crime in order to get what he wants. Good score, perfect acting,costumes, excellent atmosphere and subject. The film is full of suspense and mystery. It is the same wave as very popular in 80s "10 Negrityat". Great film ever.
