I agree! Also, what an odd scene...

I thought it was a little weird as well. But then again I didn't really understand it.
There is a clock that never strikes...
There is a cathedral that goes down and a lake that goes up...
There is a little carriage abandoned in the copse...
There is a troupe of little actors in costume...
And when you are hungry or thirsty, there is someone who drives you away.

Its a scene from a movie which based on Chekhovs novel "The Shooting Party". The girl, Olga, is caught between her presumably "true" love of the man who is swirrling her around and her desire to advance in life by marrying the baliff (the man she is marrying in the clip). Thats why she cries.
Funny btw that she is named Olga. I really think the shape of the eyes and the cheekbones are Tatianas. In some scenes she really "catch" her in fotos we have of Tatiana.

I've always thought that King Peter of Yugoslavia looked a lot like Aleksei as a small child. Which may not be that surprising since they were distant cousins, but it may give a clue of how Aleksei would look like in older years...

Here's a photo comparison:

They do look alike...around the eyes mostly
There is a clock that never strikes...
There is a cathedral that goes down and a lake that goes up...
There is a little carriage abandoned in the copse...
There is a troupe of little actors in costume...

This is a post on a blog of just random old photographs, but I was shocked when I came across it because the girl on the left looks exactly like Tatiana and the girl on the right looks like Maria! (and of course then I looked at it way too long and the other two started to look like Olga and Anastasia... but I know the resemblance isn't nearly as great.)

I like this thread :) it's pretty cool to see other people who may resemble OTMA, or NAOTMAA... :)

I think I look like Alexei, it may just be my eyes *no they aren't the Romanov Blues* but their brown, lol and even though this is black and white, I drew my self.. lol I'm pretty proud of it. and it strikes me how similar I look like Alexei... Well that's my eyesight and opinion :) Tell me your's? do you think I resemble Alexei?



Above, is a permanent marker drawing I did of myself. And next to it, is a foto of Alexei from the 1913 Livadia Tercentenary Sessions.
:)

God Speed!

Yes, you look like Alexei! But your drawing looks older than Alexei!

As I watched The House of the Spirits a week ago I remark that the little girl which was sitting at the table looked like Anastasia



Sorry, pic is not very good, maybe you know, which girl I mean ;)
