Goofs

When Lady Esther shows baron Evert-Kokoltsev kids playing in laboratory, there is a Wimshurst machine on the table. However, this contraption was developed after 1880 while the movie is set in 1875. Distinctive oblong inserts show that this is machine of Wimshurst's design, not the period-appropriate generator designed by Holtz or Toepler. See more »

don't waste your time
4 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

the book might be good, but the movie is quite disappointing.

the acting is really bad. especially the main character is really annoying. since the movie was too long, there was almost no suspense for a detective story. sometimes it looks like a comedy, but unfortunately a bad one. the story is quite predictable. all in all, it is a waste of time. if you want to see a well done russian detective story, watch the old episodes of "adventures of sherlock homes".
