Great site, Laura! I love it!

Have you put the interview with Sarushka on Frozen Tears yet? I could be wrong, but I didn't see it whenever I visited.

Thanks!

Oh, Laura, I LOVE YOUR SITE!! I had not known about it before joining this Forum, and it's now one of my favorites. It's so beautiful!

Not the point. I love your new additions. The only documentary I've ever seen was the Biography "Anastasia". It's funny, isn't it? It's called Anastasia, but most of it focuses on Anna Anderson.

Anyway, I'll have to see about getting some of the others. Which one was your favorite?

PS - I would have tried to win a copy of The Lost Crown, but I had already pre-ordered it from Amazon. Oh, well.

Thanks so much Olga.B! You're very kind.
I don't know if I have a favourite documentary to be honest! There are so many good ones out there. I really do favor The Last Days of the Last Tsar, the new one about the White Duchesses, and of course, for nostalgia sake, I loved the old Discovery Channel one. : D

UPDATE TIME GUYS!
- New Documentary, New Score, and NEW ARTIST INTERVIEW!
Our very own AP members, Imperial Grounds and BlessOTMA helped make this update possible! Check out the site and let me know what you think!

Stunning. Simply STUNNING!

First of all, i have to confess my affection to Annie is of a very special kind; she has the same age of my mom, but i feel her like a older sister.
Then, as i've already written somewhere, Annie's work is special to me, expecially the ones where she "catches" pieces of life. The one of Tatiana writing at her table in Tobolsk is my favourite; since i'm working on a novel about otma in exile, i looked at this painting in a special way, and it really helped me SEE that very moment. I always see my carachters moving in my head vefore i write about them, but having no artistic skills (i mean painting and drawing) the images in my mind never go out, since i can hardly hold a pencil in my hand!
It's like Annie could draw down what i saw in my mind, and to me this is simply stunning. So, now i have something to look at while writing, and this is the very best i can wish, because when my eyes are open to type on my pc, the images in my mind become blurry, and they make clearer only if i shut my eyes; of course i can't write if they are still shut, so giving a look at Annie's work is like having my mind images fixed there, in front of me, and wiriting becomes so easier...

Thanks you Laura for the documentry, also... it was stunningly beautiful!
I liked evertthing, but most of all i laughed till having tears watching what Anastasia could do in EVERY footage... Once she waves at the camera, another time she lifts her skirt (looking for something?) in front of the camera, another time again a train's coming, Alexej run straight through the railway lines (!!!), Derevenkocatches him but Nastja go to the railway linea anyway... the realizes the train&the camera and run back...
I've always imagined such things, but seeing them REALLY... i was crying for too much laugh!
