adaptation of a nice novel, it is good travel in the XIX century Russian universe. tradition, love story, adventures, tension, beautiful images, not bad acting, seductive script, romance and air of soap-opera, each is perfect excuse to see it and, maybe, if the passion for Russian civilization or the charm of Alex Vorobev are deep, to love it. picture of a world, image of rules and gestures, it is one of films with not great ambitions but interesting as seductive ingredients of a Sunday afternoon. sure, it is not exactly Russia but it is a pink Russian story. and it is enough for many expectations in which clichés are not really just a word. music, atmosphere, costumes, characters are pieces of a nice show who presents, in delicate nuances, a culture, a novel, a space.
