a visual delight. a credible Catherine. great cast. and that is not
all. it is not a documentary and not a serious analysis of Tsarina
reign. it is only a good axis for rainy day and not bad occasion to
admire Catherine Zeta-Jones in a pretty role. the acting - a film with
Jeanne Moreau,Ian Richardson, Mel Ferrer has not the problems in this
domain. and Omar Sharif presence is the best sign for recognize a film
who could be not very serious. a brilliant fresco about a Russian
period. high ambitions, reasonable solutions. and fun at whole because
not only the flavor of atmosphere is important but the nice build of
fundamental moments. a film with few drops of fairy tale. good option
against the Disney princes fashion.
