They're all here: the Romanovs, Lenin, Stalin, Trotzki, Kerenski and Rasputin. It should be epic. It is not. I gave it some thought and finally believe that the film isn't interesting or moving because the main character Nicholas doesn't have a single heroic attitude in 'Nicholas and Alexandra'. So you can't identify with him or admire him. Loved Tom Baker's performance as Rasputin though. Already forgotten.
About three hours of gaudy costumes and sluggish pomp, infrequently punctuated with line readings such as, "That's what she said." It would be hilarious if it weren't so damned serious. I know there's a fascinating story of the Romanovs to be had, somewhere, but what I've seen so far gets so overwhelmed by the opulence that it all becomes a shiny gold blur.
