Pugachev
13 October 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

...as a sort of spice bad used. Sure, the love story becomes more obvious but the dialogue remains the big problem. Jason Clarke propose a Potemkin reminding the traits of the tsar Peter the Great and the fight for power seems a difficult balance. Catherine by Helen Mirren remains a not very credible sketch. But, sure, it is a serie for large public and few spices are useful always. Maybe, not used so ...simplistic.
