Storyline

A teenage girl living in the ruins of the Romanov's palace finds herself running from the Secret Police with her four magic instruments, who are all she has left of her family, whom she can't remember. In a baggage car on a freight train, the young girl, Anastasia, finds the former General of the Tzar's army, Vladimir Ichonovitch, stowing away in a suitcase. Ichonovitch assumes from the beginning that Anastasia is out to prove that she's the heir to the Romanov throne, and that she wants the fortune. Anastasia, of course, knows nothing of this, but gets sucked into the con with Ichonovitch, who teaches her family history and dresses her up. Written by April

Excellent kids movie!
12 April 2005 | by (england) – See all my reviews

Both my 5-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son love this movie, and it certainly holds the youngest's attention longer than any other animation we own.

The story is sweet, and the dialogue rather good, if a bit corny at times. Some of the banter between Vladimir and Anastasia can be rather funny at times, even from an adult's viewpoint. The songs are also rather catchy.

I think the fact that I haven't gotten completely sick of it yet (even though we've had it about 2 years, first on video, then on DVD), is a testament to its quality.

If you want historical accuracy for your kids, don't bother. Otherwise, it's a great investment that will certainly give you that hours' peace when you really need it.
