Typical stunning Russian epic.
13 May 2018 | by jamjamjuliusSee all my reviews

I love period drama and the Russians always do a wonderful job, even if at its heart is a political statement. Strong female characters, strong male characters, strong story. The only thing I find myself missing is a 2nd season
