Crimea
13 October 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

It is the most ambiguous episode of serie. It gives to the Russian offensive in South a fake romantic flavor. It defines in vulgar- simplistic terms the conquest of Crimea and the Tatar Khanat. And it is unfair. The use of popular gossips about Catherine is the only purpose of this mediocre serie. Not a motif of joy but the perfect excuse for build a serie around great Helen Mirren .
