How interesting to see actual pictures of the Epiphany ceremony at the Winter Palace, images that before have never been more than imaginings.

Thank you Joanna

In the photograph of Nicholas returning to the Winter Palace can anyone identify any of the men with him?

In the first one which entrance/exit was N. coming out of?  Is it right on the Neva side of the Palace?  Never having been there I can't orient myself.

These photographs are priceless!  The best.  Thanks Joanna!

Thank you for posting this link Lucien.  Mr. Sergeev is a wonderful photographer.  I am going to spend hours with his files after looking at his New Orleans photos....apparently he is residing in NO now.

I just found this site.  This is a walk through of the Winter Palace by a "ghost" who takes us through 33 rooms and many eras (not necessarily in order).

It is in Russian, but it looks like a feast for the eyes.

There might already be a therad on this film. It is a classic, in it's own way.  Creativley filmed and beautiful. I got lost a few times on the story though, if there was one.
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

I'm sure there already is a thread--it's been around for awhile. Anyway, I love this film--every shot is just beautiful and the storyline (if one could call it that) is intriguing, or at least I thought so. The ball sequence at the end is simply wonderful. *Sighs dreamily* You really must watch it Alixz--it is indeed a classic!

Thanks guys.  I thought there might be a thread already, but I didn't find one.  The movie was made in 2002, I think, so it has been around for a while.

I just ordered it from Amazon.  Can't wait for it to get here!

Hi,

I have the DVD and have watched it several times.  I also saw it when it came out in the cinema;  The theater was about 30% full and mostly senior citizens but over the 2 weeks it played and by word of mouth many university students were taking it up.  It was held over 1 more week.

The best parts were the presentation of the Persian ambassador to Nicholas I in St. George's Hall and the ball at the end and the descent down the Jordan Staircase (my favourite place on Earth!!)......
The film is grand and it's a good way to see the Winter Palace & the art works while eating your popcorn....

Enjoy!!!!!!

Larry

Popcorn! This film takes champagne & caviar! and more than one viewing to really understand it.
