This is the story of Peter I, Czar of Russia from 1682, and the constant struggle between him, his sister Sophia, and the Streltsy, an important Russian military corp. The story depicts the efforts of Peter in transforming Russia in an "all European" country, importing scientists, costumes, technology, and military tactics.Written by

Maximilian Schell depicts the turbulent events occurring during the shooting of this mini-series in his autobiographical novel "Der Rebell" (written in 1997). Written from the point-of-view of an actor (Schell), who particularly suffered because of the harassments of his replaced director Kevin Kramsky (a nom de plume for Marvin J. Chomsky) who is therefore killed by the actor at the end of the novel. See more »
for accuracy and for acting. for care for details and music. sure, for Maximilien Schell in one of his greatest roles. a film like a history lesson, who escapes from artistic temptation effects for present a character and his period, the huge pieces of a work and the life as alive parable. a film about transition and ambitions.and about lessons of a manner to transform a society. far to be a pink picture, it is a good example about the force of accuracy.great cast, wise script. a show and little more. because it present more than a page of Russian history but a portrait of a struggle. a seductive mini-series. and a great occasion for discover the freshness of history air history.
