Trivia

The winter in 1997 was uncommonly snowless and warm but the movie makers wanted to film snowy Moscow streets and the Kremlin. So they used hundreds of tons of artificial snow. See more »

Goofs

In scenes that take place in 1885, the cadets are carrying Mosin-Nagant rifles. This rifle did not exist at the time. It was introduced into service in 1891. The standard Russian infantry arm in the 1880's was the Berdan rifle. See more »

Another good film after Burnt by the Sun
4 September 2000 | by (Budapest,Hungary) – See all my reviews

Most of the critics are saying bad things about this movie, but all of my friends who have seen it are saying that it was really good. I started to like Nikita Mihalkov, when I saw his film 'Burnt by the Sun'. This film is quite different, but very good too. The film lasts almost 3 hours, but you won't lose your attention until the end. Actors are good, even I had some problems with J. Ormond's acting at some places. Alexei Petrenko and Oleg Menshikov are the best. As we see Oleg, we can believe him that he is really a man in his twenties(although we know he is not) and it's not because his make-up. The director of photography has done a good work too. I'd recommend this film to anyone, who likes movies with great pictures, cast, and who likes Nikita Mihalkov. You don't have to be a romantic type to like it.
