Ah.... thanks. I was looking for that movie but didn't know it's name. Thanks a lot ;)

In my opinion it's the best scene of the execution of all the movies about the IF.

I'm agree, it's the best scene of the execution of all the movies about the Romanovs (but so sad  :( of course).
You can see the entire movie in www.frozentears.org

I hate to be an old grouch, but could we please move this conversation to one of the many existing threads about the execution and/or films about the imperial family?

During the french revolution, babies had their heads dashed in on the base of the guillotine.    Children were killed with their parents.  I took a history course on the french revolution in college.
It was a very cruel time, one that I am glad that I did not live in.

Oh, this is awful! I am also glad that we do not live in times like that anymore.

Oh, but we do, unfortunately! There are still far too many cases of human on human cruelty.

I remember reading about Olga saying she was glad she did not live in such barbaric times, either. Poor girl!

History and current events are full of such horrors. Try reading a newspaper or news website.

Does anyone know if Russia's current president is any relation to the Medvedev that was one of Nicholas II's executioners?

It seems unlikely. Medvedev is very common surname in Russia.

At least I'm not the only one who noticed that.  /

I feel really strange about this subject.  I've learned that people like Adolp Hitler and Josef Stalin killed millions of innocent people like you and me, and I've accepted it.  I've learned that Empress Sissi was assasinated  and I've accepted it.  I've learned that Eva Peron died of cancer at an unfairly young age and I've accepted it.  Why is it that you can give me so much evidence and information that the Romanovs were killed that night, yet it seems more like a clip from movie or a paragraph from a book that isn't true?  Somehow, I feel that that isn't what happened.  Maybe I should have listened to that ignorant teacher last year.   Maybe I need to stop day-dreaming and see the truth.  but either ways, I still feel like it couldn't have happened.  Cally me crazy, but that's just how I feel. 

If I'm wrong and all of you guys have been right all  along (which is most likely the case), it's so saddening.  Underneath all of the grandeur, the jewels, and the power, they were human.  They ate, they slept, they bled, they cried, they laughed, and they died.  Why must history be so cruel?  Why is it the innocent and the perfect couple must die?  When shall we know the answers to these question?  Nevermore.

I feel the same way. I think it is the countless photographs of them that make them more real to us.  Being a mother, my heart breaks looking at their pictures sometimes, especially their early photos of them, as babies and young children, much like my own.

Seeing those gorgeous children and knowing that in a decade, or more or less, they are going to suffer a horrible murder, and they had no idea.

It makes me go into denial, too. One time when I first visited the site, I saw a photo of OTM, when O and T were just little and M a baby, about one year old. I remember thinking, "No. It's not them. These are not the Romanovs, they are someone else's kids. Some other cute kids of a century ago- and they live in America or England, and they will all live to be ninety or a hundred, and will have happy lives. Just, no!" I was almost in tears, and sometimes I have to stop looking at Romanov photos because they do depress me. It makes me feel that God had no mercy.

I agree with this. Photographs impart something on a subconscious level as well as simply capturing a moment in time.
When one sees as many of this group of people as even the average Romanov fan has...it's something. It creates a body  of knowledge and certainly,  feeling. It's like getting a message in a bottle. Even though there is no return message...communication
of a sort has been established.

I also think that part of the thrill of seeing a new to one's self  Romanov photo. At least for me., I feel ah... that's another moment stolen from the cellar....good.

I agree. Just looking at photos it makes you kinda wonder sometimes "hmm... i wonder what's going on at that particular moment? What are the girls thinking about at this moment? You know what I'm saying?

"All of you guys have been right all along-" ? What do you mean? Their bones are lying underground as we speak. What more proof could you need?
If you realize all of these aspects of them to be so human, how can you not believe that they can be murdered? Nicholas and Alexandra were not "the perfect couple". Maybe it's this romanticism about that's keeping you from seeing the truth. As Robert_Hall said, terrible things happen every day. You just don't pay as much attention to them.
