Goofs:
Factual errors: After Rasputin first heals Alexis, when Nicholas and Alexandra are conversing privately, Nicholas is seen wearing a shirt with a capital letter "N" monogram, presumably for his first name. In the Russian Cyrillic alphabet, however, the capital letter corresponding to an English N is written as "H".See more »

Much better than most of its competitors, 19 June 2001
Author: HD24 from UK

OK, you can look at this film in two ways - either as a good play, or as an historical drama. It works both ways, although my main quibble would be that one is left with little real idea of why the revolution took place and what Rasputin's role in this was. For that reason, it could have done with being a bit longer and more detailed. Rickman plays Rasputin with humour and humanity - not the one-dimensional monster of most other films about him, which is a good thing from both a dramatic and historical point of view. Ian McKellen as Nicholas II has sweetness and dignity although he is probably too old for the role, and the scenes where he almost loses his temper are (historically) highly improbable! I have no problems with Greta Scaachi's acting, but from a historical point of view her portrayal of the Empress is altogether too vulnerable and lacking in fight; and why the German accent in certain scenes!?

I doubt there will ever be a film that pleases all of the various fans/critics of Nicholas and Alexandra, Rasputin and the Russian revolution; this one is better and less sensational than most.
