People get carried away here about the daughters and forget the film was about the parents, "Nicholas and Alexandra".

the only way that will happen is if a huge fan of the Romanov's writes and directs it....


This huge fan has been dreaming of doing that since I was 13 and I still do. No acting, I just want to write and direct.

Ok, look. Does it really matter how much they really look like OTMA (can't find question mark)

It doesn't. They are like, never ever going to make that a priority. It's the acting and portrayl that's important. Lol I know that it wasn't so great in this film but that's beside the point. There not gonna say to an actress, 'sorry, you don't look enough like the real Maria we can't hire you'

Lower your expectations a bit guys.

I discussed this matter with a lot of people (I studied history at the University, so we spoke a lot about this issue) and yes: this must be a likeness between the actor/actress and the person you are portraying. If not, things could be accurate, but you have the whole impression of not be watching the real thing. And if you adds to it that the movie was not even historically accurae, this mixing up of no likeness and not the accurate thing will have an only result: a bad movie.

Besides, these last tme we have wonderful make up, that could by itself create a striking likeness where there isn't any or little. Did you remember the movie "Ghandi"? The actor was not exactly as Ghandi was, but the make up was great and he was the spitting image of the character he was portraying.

Besides, people who wants to do things as they must be done, hires good actors who also has a certain likeness to the historical characters they are portraying. At the TV movie "The French Revolution",. by Enrico and Heffron, choiced a Robespierre that was the spitting image of Robespierre himseld (Andrejz Seweryn). That's the same for the movie "Danton"  by Wajda. Robespierre portrayed by Wojcecz Pszoniak was very similar to him. We don't ask for a twin brother or sister, but at least for a beliavle thing!

Adding to it, "Nicholas and Alexandra" amazed me: they looked for a Stolypin who wasa real likeness to this character and he only appears few times in the whole movie...and they forgot to search girls who could be at least similar too the real OTMA...Hum. Can't understand them.

I said I would restrain from posting here again, but the actresses who play OTM in Romanovy: Ventsenosnaya Semya look near identical to the girls. Olga in particular. However I did not find Anastasia a very good match.

Olga:





Tatiana:





Maria:

personally i thought the actresses playing them were waaay to old.... :-\

Well, according to IMDB, at the time the movie was filmed (1970-71), the actresses were aged about  21 (Olga), 16 (Tatiana), 17 (Maria), and 14 (Anastasia).  So not too old, really, considering the movie did cover several years.

it takes long to load, that's true, but it's worth the waiting
