When Anastasia breaks into the palace looking for Dimitri, she finds the place almost intact, along with many precious items such as plates, fine tapestries, candlesticks, furniture, and, most notably, a painting in which she recognizes herself. Actually, the Winter Palace - depicted in the movie, as it is the only one located in St. Petersburg - was stormed and looted in 1917 by Russian revolutionaries of everything valuable. Besides, all the paintings where slashed with bayonets and, from the river, the cruiser Aurora used the facade for target practice. Moreover, by 1927, when the action is supposed to take place, the Palace was rebuilt and was seat of the Hermitage Museum, so the conditions in which Anastasia finds the Palace, as shown in the movie, are impossible.

Dowager Empress Marie:
There was a time, not very long ago, where we lived in an enchanted world of elegant palaces and grand parties. The year was 1916, and my son, Nicholas, was the czar of Imperial Russia.

In Anastasia you expect there to be a few musical numbers, a battle of good and evil, and romance. Well there is that but, it comes out so beautifully to where this doesn't even feel like an animated movie. It feels more real than you'd ever expect from an animated movie like this.
Anastasia is a movie about a girl named Anya who lost nearly all of her memory about her past and her family. Now with the help of a con-man named Dimitri shes going to Paris to learn the truth about her past. While on this journey an evil sorcerer (who's the reason her family died in the first place) is out bring an end to the Romanav line forever. So as Dimitri and Anya grow closer to learning the truth about her past they must also make a difficult choice about what to do as they begin to fall in love.
Anastasia is a movie that just about the entire family will enjoy. It is light-hearted, filled with laughter, beautiful music that will make you want to dance and sing, and adventure to keep you excited throughout the film. This is a film I recommend to everyone who wants to find good whole-some family entertainment to watch, because Anastasia is perfect for that very reason.
