Rasputin And The Tsars

The aristocracy has had to suffer with various problems and menaces from the early silent age…even from remote, suspicious countries like Russia, a land that sometime ago, besides having Cossacks and vodka (synonymous words) also had genuine and local aristocrats called Tsars (a hard to believe fact, certainly).

The Tsar and especially the Tsarina, as it happened with their European relatives, had bizarre amusements in order to bear their boring and luxurious lives (the summon of a genuine aristocrat). One of them was a fondness for the greedy quack called Rasputin. That's what the film "Rasputins Liebesabenteuer", directed by Herr Martin Berger, a German director with a leftist background, addresses.

In spite of a German film production depicting Russian facts (a risky business, certainly) many technical and stylish film aspect of the oeuvre has cross-influences with Russian films. They include fast editing (the dance scene) and close-ups that scrutinizes those rough Bolshevist faces. These remind this German count of the superb and Russian silent films of that era.

Many important German actors of those silent times - including the mysterious Herr Max Schreck perform the film. Especially remarkable is the Russian actor Herr Nikolai Malikoff who plays Rasputin in a very convincing way (drunkenness including). Although finally and in spite of being formally a fine and carefully made film production, it lacks interest, emotion and needs more depth. Examples from this German count are in the historical background and life in the Russian court. Depth is lacking for such important historical characters; the film does not study them enough psychologically in order to know the intrigues and Russian ambitions that, in turn, would finally enrich the story and the film as a whole.

And now, if you'll allow me, I must temporarily take my leave because this German Count must ask for the Tsar whom this aristocrat has not seen in a long, long time.
