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
This TV series is airing now in Greece. While I was there I tried to catch as many episodes as possible, and I even taped some to make sure I wasn't going to miss them! I loved the settings, the atmosphere, the costumes... I thought it was all very well done! Each episode carried the flavor of the 19th century into my 21st century living room! I also liked the twists and turns of the plot. Unlike most other soap operas, this one had quite a few surprises. Yes, I did see some things coming, but that has more to do with me being a seasoned TV viewer than the series being anything close to "banal". The acting was good as well. I regretted the fact that in Greece the series was aired dubbed. I think I would have enjoyed it even more in its original language. All in all, a series worth watching. If it airs in your area, consider yourselves lucky!
