Totally hokey, straight out of 1955. This is barely watchable.
28 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

A lush (but visually repetitive), naive, confusing and frequently tiresome, story about the 19th-century Czarist Russian Aristocracy solely from the perspective of violent duels to maintain honor.

Peter Fedorov is the Russian Colin Farrell in a stunning similarity. Kept expecting him to speak Russian with an Irish accent.

Teensy tiny bit of a love story . . . totally hokey, straight out of 1955. This is barely watchable.
