Francesco Cabras, an italian actor.

I saw the film in original (italian - the production was italian) but i did not like it. It's original, of course, i mean it's not told as a normal film, it's  confusing, but genial; at first i liked it, but then the historical mistakes became bigger and bigger, and the film itself became boring.
The worst historical mistakes (IMHO)

- Grand duke dmitri is much older than he should be, and has beard&mustache
- He says he's going to marry Olga N in a month (!!!!!) and so his well known relation with Felix should be interrupted (i'm not sure it was so well known).
- In Jusupov's manor there are women (!!)
- Irina is in Saint Petersburg (she really was in the Crimea in December 1916) even if she doesn't appear in the film (and that's correct at least).
- Jurovskij, "the black man", in the film is BLOND, WITH BLUE EYES, TALL AND THIN. I really wonder whether the director ever saw a photo of him??
- The cellar of the execution in Ipatev House has become a car box - even smaller than the real one (!!!!), no windows, a very low ceiling...
- In the cellar, Alexej STANDS UP ON HIS OWN LEGS. That's incredible.
Just not to mention that the actor who's Nicholas doesn't resemble Nicholas a bit, and the same for Alexandra, but this things are minor mistakes.
You could ask why we see the Romanov's murder in a film about Rasputin. Well, i did not understand myself, but i think it's to show that Rasputin's words (If the one who kills me is a member of your family, you and yours won't survive 2 years) were true. +

I don't think it's a film worthing the time it needs, at least if you well know Russian history - it's so little historical and so focused on the Khlisty's orgies.

Can't say the actress playing the Empress really resembles her at all though...

The Russo-French Rasputin was now shown on German TV. I thought it was a great disappointment, especially Fanny Ardant as Alexandra. Her part was almost silent, and when she spoke it was pretty irrelevant. Ardant's character had nothing whatsoever to do with the real empress. There was nothing of Alexandra's haughtiness or firmness of resolve to protect the monarchy, nothing of her suffering and stress over her son's illness, nothing of her love for her husband. In fact the film doesn't even much discuss the origin and nature of Rasputin's influence at court. I think Alexei's hemophilia isn't even mentioned. I remember only one scene when Rasputin is actually called on to help the tsarevich in any way. Last but not least the film bored me to death as nothing dramatic was happening. It is worlds apart from the version with Alan Rickman.

Someone needs to get Al Pacino to play Rasputin. He does deranged these days like no other.
