Beautiful film Ignore the haters!
26 August 2020 | by nikitafayeSee all my reviews

First off this is a film not a documentary or a historical event so people complaining of inaccuracies are simple minded. Beautiful set! Beautiful costumes and although I wanted a little more in depth at both characters I enjoyed this film. I'm a lover of Russian culture, history and language. I found this film to be wonderfully done with portrayal of Nicholas to be splendid. I did find the ending to be a little rushed or I guess "off" kind of thrown in our faces instead of tied together. Nevertheless I enjoyed it and will watch again.
