The story of "Bednaya Nastya" is set in the XIX century and features a whole tangle of various genres: romance, detective, historical drama and whatnot. The main plot of this soap-opera turns around a young and of course beautiful girl named Anna Platonova - a serf that was brought up by her patron Baron Korf who treated her like his own daughter, much to the seeming displeasure of his son Vladimir. Upon entering the High Society and meeting a noble young man Mikhail Repnin Anna doesn't even guess what kind of ordeals her life is going to go through... Love, hatred, betrayal, murder - it all has something to do with the mysterious Nastya that is being looked for during the whole series. But, as it usually happens, this massive 120-eps soap ends well, with love found, evil punished and justice triumphing. Written by
Superb actors, fantastic sets, historically picturesque details and a whole lot of tangles plots - what else a period soap-opera needs? "Bednaya Nastya" is a series of great quality and value despite the quite logical pointlessness of half a story itself. The dialogue, the acting and the art merits of the show are just beyond praise. Russia hasn't done anything like that before (and I deliberately omit "Petersburg's Mysteries") so for a pioneer big-budget TV soap it all looks more than impressive and engrossing. Especially the actors - from the acclaimed stars like Ostroumova, Philippenko and Kalyagin, to the young talents like Strahov, Krasilov, Isayev and a dozen more. This series is still proving to be one of the highest rated primetime shows on Russian TV and is sure to surprise and please the most utter soap fans.
