I Love it when Yurovsky  (that old  Red  pig >:()  asks Alexei
"whats it like being ill"
and Alexei  says   "Whats it like having grey eyes"   I'm always cheering on the inside when he says that    and yes the part  with  Nagorny  and  the Tsar hugs him with the words  "I wont let them"
and Nagorny  says something  and the Tsar hugs him  sadly  and says   "Dear God"   You can hear the hurt  in his voice

Does anyone have any screen captures of that scene in Tobolsk, where the girls are dancing with the soldiers?

My favorite scene from the film N&A is when Micheal Redgrave who plays Sazonov is in Rasputins apartment in St Petersburg. Accusing him of ruining Russia. When in walks prince Yussopov and Grand Duke Dimitri after a short exchange of words Sazonov tells Prince Yossopov to "take your girls ( Casts a sly unbeliving look at the prince Yussopov) and adds or your Boys and frolic in the provences". That one always gets me considering the film was made in 1971. Great entertainment

Hmmm, I mostly prefer the scenes with the Grand Duchesses because there are so few of them.  My favorite is the scene where the girls are playing at Livadia. I don't know why, but I like the carefree, happy side of the children. The scene with a drunken Rasputin also never fails to make me laugh.

Don't you wish that some one would make a new movie about the Romanovs that would be filmed in Russia. I'll be the first in line at the movies!!!
Isn't learning fun?

Hey, do you people think that this movie implies that Alexandra did have an affair with Rasputin? Remember the scene where Alexandra is looking out the window as her husband and son go on a horse ride, then this scary music comes up and Rasputin comes in? Alexandra gives like a sly smile, walks up to him very closely and kisses his cross. Then they just look at each other and the scene breaks off. Is that implying that they did have an affair? The music and Alix's look on her face did look rather suspicious.  :o

I have a couple of favorite scenes in the movie:

1) When OTMA and Gilliard are painting and the girls start throwing paint on each other. So hilarious and cute!

2) The Assassination Party scene- I hate Rasputin, and seeing that pig get what he deserves makes me happy every time.

3) When OTMA was dancing with the soldiers in Siberia. That is such a fun scene that brings such a big smile on my face! I find myself dancing with the girls too.

4) When one of the guards tries to steal a gold cross from Alexei. Alexei pulls the man's hair, and kicks him. I was like Yes! go Alexei! I was cheering for him.

5) When Nicholas and Alexandra were alone, after Nicholas bolts the door in Ekaterinburg. A very tender, loving moment between them. This scene shows how much they truly loved each other, how devoted they were to each other. And, how, in the midst of the danger they were in, they found one moment of happiness and joy. These people were true soulmmates in the truest sense of the word (it's too bad other people didn't see that. I guess marrying for love was a rare thing in the Russian court).

Dimitri is the one in uniform and stands behind the prince. Felix is the one who says untill it comes(meaning the Revolution)  lets have some fun. Cracking stuff.

This question just came to my mind. Since there's a board on favorite scenes from Nicholas and Alexandra, let's talk about some heartbreaking scenes from the film. To me, some heartbreaking scenes were:

1) Winter Palace Massacre- after the attack on the people, the little girl started saying "Mama" over and over again and crying. That scene brings tears to my eyes every time. And I can't help it, I also feel fury at Nicholas too.

2) When the IF are going to Ekaterinburg, and they are forcibly separated from Gilliard. Olga says "Monsieur Gilliard. Monsieur Gilliard", and Gilliard replies, "I'll write. I'll try to see you!" I also feel like crying. Because you can see the reality of the situation, that the entire family is in real danger and everything around them has changed. I think OTMA (particularly Olga) realizes this as well.

That's my opinion on some truly heartbreaking scenes from the movie. How about everybody else?

Best wishes!

I'm not a big fan of this movie, but I do love the scene when the Tsar returns from Pskov after abdicating. He breaks down in front of Alix saying, "I'm sorry" over and over again.  :'(

I've always  thought a sad scene  was when the Reds  were getting ready to take away  Nagorny for having punched the guard who tried to steal from Alexei. When  Nagorny and Nicky embrace and Nicky says "I won't let them hurt you. " You can just see it in both their eyes that this is the last time that they will see each other. :'( :'(

I have to admit to something. I was practically on the floor in laughter. It was probably one of the most over-acted scenes in the movie and I kept thinking, "Surely the tsar was more of a man than this snivelling caricature. If not... then good riddance." I just cannot bring myself to believe that Nicholas was such a wimpish sort as this ridiculous portrayal.

When Nicky and Alix fight Ö I just canít imagine them saying all those hurtful things to each other. Also the abdication, I feel sorry for Nicky. Bloody Sunday, when a woman got killed and then the child starts crying with his father. When the IF are trying to get through the crowds, you just feel sorry for them Ö And how could anyone forget their massacre, and the sad music comes on. The music I find is also very heartbreaking.
