Trivia

While some Christian viewers may think Nicholas crosses himself the wrong way (from left to right) after seeing his father in the coffin, this is the correct way for the Russian Orthodox Church: right hand crosses over the chest from right to left. See more »

the frame
19 July 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The purpose of serie is just popularisation of the life of the last Romanovs. And it does this in decent manner. Sure, the commentaries of writers and historians are not the best, the performances are acceptable, the physical rasamblance - not always most inspired. But the episode represents only the frame of story. And, starting from this point, the serie is promising.Yes, the colors white and black are so powerful than the nuances are compromised. But this episode is the first. And the rhytm seems good.
