USSR, June 1985. Based on actual events. After contact with the Salyut 7 space station is lost, cosmonauts Vladimir Dzhanibekov and Viktor Savinykh dock with the empty, frozen craft, and bring her back to life.
Filming took place at the Mariinsky Theatre, as well as Catherine, Alexander, Yusupov and Elagin palaces. In addition to the film it was built scenery of the Assumption Cathedral, the Palace on the River pontoon carriages and interiors of the Imperial train. See more »
If this movie is using real persons names, it shouldn't be so far from real facts. Sadly, it is from the very start, where Nicky faints during his wedding. Utter nonsense, as it is known that he was genuinely in love with Alix (that marriage did not made his mother happy as she hoped for better standing partner for him). It is funny to see ppl from Russia call Nicholas and Alexandra saints (they were a normal happy couple, just totally unfit for ruling, and victims of both their actions and historical events). Yet this movie really made even me angry. Why not take real facts which are interesting enough? Why make such a stupid script? Moreover, the actors don't resemble the people they are playing to the least.
