Useful to understand Russians
24 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is the story about fourth world champion, magnificent Russian chess player Aleksander Alekhin. The true reflection of his entire life, immigration, fantastic matches vs. Max Euve, two his basically unsuccessful marriages and following loneliness, fight against alcohol abuse, difficult life under German occupation during WW2 and consequent death far from Russia where he always wanted to return to.

Alekhin, the most brilliant Russian chess player, had such dramatic life that writer didn't need to tell something superfluous except facts to make novell more interesting. Everybody who likes true and dramatic stories should watch this movie.
