This movie must be seen!
1 November 2017 | by leo_madSee all my reviews

It's fantastical new movie made by one of the best modern Russian director Aleksey Uchitel. Definitely, you can't recognised this movie as "the real" story - and so what? Yes, it's another beautiful fairy tail about Love, but how professionally it was done! Perfect costumes, perfect casting, perfect example of "virtual history" (sort of "virtual history" we all know from ancient classic Latin writers), very dynamic, very, very, very!

The main drama of the movie is the conflict between THE LOVE and THE ONUS, and if the Emperor of Russian Empire could have the choice in it (it's an ancient dilemma of the world: Love vs Onus).

IMHO all the scandal around this movie happened in Russia (organised by Orthodox church) is total fake and totally idiotic!

9 from 10 without any doubts! This movie must be seen! Thank you Mr. Uchitel!
