Storyline

The 20th century is just around the corner. In winter, St. Petersburg transforms into a fairy tale-like wonderland where frozen rivers and canals serve as the iced-over roads and bustle with skaters and markets. The city is home to 18-year-old Matvey who works as an ice-skating delivery boy at a local bakery. The son of a poor lamplighter, his only treasure is a pair of silver-plated skates he inherited from his father. When he is unjustly fired he joins a gang of pickpockets who work the canals, led by the revolutionary-minded Alex. Meanwhile, a high-ranking official's daughter Alisa feels like a prisoner in her father's mansion. She dreams of studying science which goes against her father's conservative views on a woman's role in society. One day their paths cross.

Do not fall for a fairytale scenery
20 February 2021 | by t-09747See all my reviews

Lack of good morals in this movie is aggravated by the most boring script. Something is starting to happen after one hour into the movie. I give 2 stars for the beautiful views of my hometown. The rest is rubbish.
