REVIEWS

Review by ricky Lorrio (posted on 25-Mar-2005)

Just saw this film on the BBC, and thought one of the best histroric dramas ever. It deals with the events that lead to the Russian Revolution and the death of Czar Nicolas and his family. What makes this film a cut above the norm is the way it deals with each historic event without going through details or missing out any. The central characters are played with just enough emotion as not to like them or dislike them, but towards the end you do feel for them and their untimely fate. The ending is brilliantly staged, seeing we know the Czar's fate it is none the less shocking and moving at the same time. In these days of bio-pics, and thinking of flops like Oliver Stone's Alexander, this is really how a historic drama should be made.
