This historical melodrama with a romantic plot focuses on the relationship of a young ballet dancer and an heir to the throne, using lavish production from costume details to whole sets. The biographical film from the life of the last Russian Czar provoked criticism in Russia, mainly by the Orthodox Church, which canonized Nicholas II at the turn of the millennium. The main role is portrayed by Michalina Olszanska, famous in the Czech Republic for I, Olga Hepnarova.
