Well-made, but not for history-lovers.
9 January 2006 | by (Moscow) – See all my reviews

It may seem a dramatic, beautiful movie if you have no idea of Austrian history during the period of the First World War and before it. The main character, Sissy, reminded me of an innocent victim, who stirred up a hornet's nest without her own will, and is sentenced to never ending sufferings: too sentimental and not true-to-life. While watching "Sissy" I was constantly waiting for the moment when the famous Count Andassi finally comes in sight - and that disappointed me much: they made one of the most outstanding and clever people of the time, and (without any doubt) the best Hungarian Politician a mediocre noble from some Far-Away district of the vast Austrian Impire, not more than that!!! And the film-Sissy's altitude towards Andrassi didn't coincide with the reality. Not a word was said about the situation in Europe in 1989(and this is the year, when the events take place). And it's rather difficult to judge, when you have only the free interpretation of history and of the impress's life. Too many thing are exaggerated, too many curious features are forgotten(Well...for me they're curious, because my own life is connected with historians and history, and that reveals many secrets of the past:) ), but on the whole, the film's worth watching if you're ready not to pay attention to the part of the plot, that deals not with Sissy's reminiscences. My vote is 6!
