Storyline

In December 1825, distinguished members of the Russian military, most of whom were quite affluent and of noble lineage, took it upon themselves to stir revolution against the autocratic and tyrannical Czar Nikolai I in the wake of his not honoring (or even acknowledging) the drafting of a constitution for the Russian people. The revolution failed miserably and the conspirators (known as the Decembrists) were weeded out by the czar himself. One by one, each of the conspirators confess and are systematically exiled to the harsh winters of Siberia, slated to work and wither in a prison/mine. The wives of the conspirators are faced with the prospect of leaving the bosom of wealth and family (including their own children) to be with their husbands in the brutal Siberian locale. If they agree to this, they face having their illustrious social stations stripped away and certain disdain from everyone around them. Among these remarkable women is a princess exiled from France who falls in love ... Written by thustlebird

Trivia

The title of the film (literally: "The Star of Captivating Happiness") is a quotation from a poem by Alexander Pushkin. The poem reads, "While we are inflamed by freedom, / While our hearts live for honor, / My friend, let us devote to the fatherland / The fine impulses of our spirits, / Have faith, my friend: it will arise, / The star of captivating happiness / Will awaken Russia from its slumber, / And on the ruins of autocracy / They will inscribe our names!"

A great costume drama
15 May 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This movie spans a few years around year 1825 when a group of Russian officers prepared, failed and were prosecuted for a coup to establish a constitutional monarchy in Russia. Historical realities however are the least of concerns for the director who concentrated instead of timeless issues of love, betrayal, and honor. Well acted and fast paced movie with a star cast sporting names like Smoktunovsky, Batalov, Kostolevsky etc. Highly recommended.
