It is better than other Russian movies dealing with history
26 May 2009 | by ionmarandiciSee all my reviews

When I started watching the movie I was struck by the character playing Pushkin, because he acted rather contradictory. The movie depicts the situation at the Russian imperial court at the beginning of the XIX-th century, the place were Pushkin lived during his last years. The movie helped me understand better the life of the great Russian poet and his social standing. Finally I got an idea about why Pushkin decided to fight Dantes. Hoever, the movie has a slight bias favoring the idea that Pushkin and Lermontov cared a lot for Russia. It seems a constant bias of the Russian movie producers (see for example the movies about Taras Bulba or Knyaz Dologorukiy). Nevertheless, in the end I remained puzzled. Who was to blame for Pushkin's tragic fate: his wife, Georges Dantes, the poet himself or some kind of aristocratic conspiracy led by the Imperator? Even if the question remains unanswered, still I recommend this movie for all who want to understand the last moments of Pushkin's life.
