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 »

Excellent adaptation of the book
3 April 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Excellent adaptaion of the first book by Boris Akunin "Azazel'". The book is the first of series of books about Fandorin, a young Russian detective. The movie was made for TV, but it was done very well, following the book to the end. Currently there are talks of making an English version movie. Unfortunatelly, this movie is entirely in Russian.
