Impressive piece of film work and some criticism
9 January 2007 | by Bon_SneyderSee all my reviews

A very impressive piece of film work - great setting, great actors - and of course an inevitable tragic story.

But - alas, there is an alas. The real story of the captivity of the czar family has been - based on numerable historical accounts - much more gruesome and humiliating than showed in this picture.

And finally. I would have surely preferred if the final sequence with the bombastic funeral and canonizing service held by the leading figures of the Russian Orthodox church under their chief, former KGB agent "Drozdov" aka Patriarch Alexij and his equals was spared...

But I suppose that was the price that was to be paid for the support of the "Russian government" and the "Government of Moscow" as stated in the credits.
