The film is based on the second book written by Boris Akunin about Erast Fandorin. The first book ("Azazel") was made into a four-episode TV film starring Ilya Noskov as Fandorin. However, in the second film we see another actor playing the main character - Egor Beroev. Statskiy sovetnik (2005), the third film of the series (and the seventh book), introduces yet another actor in the role of Fandorin - Oleg Menshikov. See more »

Turetskii gambit contains all of the elements of a great film. The acting is underplayed. The cinematography is perfection itself. The colors are muted in concert with the drama itself. One can only desire an extension of the romantic relationship with Yegor Beroyev himself and his lovely sweetheart. There are very dramatic moments including the duel on the pier. The snow scenes are reminiscent of "Dr. Zhivago". I can highly recommend this picture for those romantics at heart. Alexander Pushkin would be proud to see this serious play in cinematic form. It is now in DVD format with excellent soundtrack and special features. This is one not to miss.
