I accidently stumbled over this link this afternoon.

I haven't any idea what it says, however, it appears to be some kind of biography of Michael:

http://romanov.blogs.sapo.pt/2008/08/?page=3

Is it?

Yup, its a biography of Mikhail from a Brazilian member of this forum (The link of APF appears right there)

Portuguese. :)

Yes, it's a biography that I wrote back in 2008. It's little more than a translation of his wikipedia biography, I was that lazy. :p

I have trouble understanding what people mean when they say that Mikhail grew up to look more Romanov.  To me, he favored Marie's side of the family in looks as a child, and while he later became tall and bony, he never really looked like Alexander III or his brothers.  Is tallness just a Romanov feature?

Michael was a tall good looking man. what I wrote about him in The Grand Dukes is that he looked as one would expect a grand duke to look. I don't know exactly what others would say about him looking like a "Romanov". to me, he looked "the part".

Tallness in the family tended to come from Maria Feodorovna, the empress who married Emperor Paul. And obviously, many other people are tall besides the Romanovs!

Did Misha in fact write a song in a camp tent during WWI on a guitar as portrayed in "Romanovy V.* Semya"?

I know nothing about that song, but I know that he was amateur composer, so who knows.... maybe...;-)

I like this movie but I think some moments seem completely false.
 The same with that last meeting of Michael and Nicholas, completely inconsistent with the facts. This could be a great scene, but unfortunately they wasted it. Pity.
