An (unfulfilled) fairy tale from Mother Russia history
28 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Yes, he was volatile and shaky, a contrary to his father. Yes, she was a capricious ambitious heart-breaker. And he (yet quite unprepared and not entirely grown-up) is going to be crowned. And he has to get royally married. A vaudeville story, on one side. But, Russian drama unfolds, even through a vaudeville. A character to make historic mistakes, unknowingly leading not only his life, but life of his family, the country, to a tragic end. A 300 years old Russian Empire fairy-tale to end in modern era. Who knows, if Nicholas would abdicate, and marry Mathilde, maybe history will be turned into a completely different direction... Director has brilliantly showed it; done by amazingly good casted characters (quite impressing is the role of Alexander the Third). And, it's a very nicely and colorfully shot movie. To me, it was a Saturday evening well spent - that's just a right story to enjoy on weekend.
