This epic historical drama, shot in the interiors of the magnificent palaces of St. Petersburg, represents an unconventional view of the personality of the Russian Emperor Paul the First. It shows him not as a tyrant , but as a living person with his own experiences, who sincerely strived to bring happiness to the country. He ruled choosing unfit methods, which lead only to a result opposite to the desired one.Written by
for each historical film, I looking to the accuracy of reflection of events. in this case, the motif for see it was Oleg Iankovski. and the gift, the splendid performance of Victor Suhorukov. it is a sketch more than a real story about the reign of a controversial tsar. not a pledge for or against Pavel I but a nice reflection about power from the Russian view point. Oleg Iankovski did an impeccable role and this is not a real surprise. the revelation is Surorokov , who explores, with precise grace, the nuances of a character who could be a hard job for many actors. because it is a film about absence and the few references are the right way to define the past of a fragile man, isolated in his personal universe. not the madness of leaders is the subject of film but the dialogue between a leader and his collaborators. a film about fragility. using a remarkable cast.
