It’s then she sent arrows of guardians of Russian history and a former Prosecutor of the Crimea Poklonski, seeing insults to Tsar Nicholas II . And the executor of his role — a great German actor Lars Eidinger — was caught in the category of pornoarkisto, apparently, due to the fact that starred in Peter Greenaway. The film tells about the relationship between the future Emperor Nicholas II and the ballerina Matilda Kschessinska, although not limited to this. It fits in the priority theme of the Ministry of culture — the 100th anniversary of the October revolution as events unfold in the fateful for the country days.
Was actually filmed on the main Imperial scene in the Great, the Mariinsky and the Alexandrinsky theatres, to famous suburbs of St. Petersburg — Tsarskoye Selo, Peterhof, Pavlovsk and the marble and the Yusupov palaces. For the scene of the coronation of the Emperor, which took place in the Dormition Cathedral of the Moscow Kremlin, erected a huge backdrop. The extras in the scene on the Khodynka field was more than two thousand people.
The role of Kschessinska played at that moment, 23-year-old Polish actress and writer Mikhalina Olshansky. She has 24 paintings in the filmography, and the international popularity brought her the tape, “I, Olga Sanarova” (Czech Republic-Poland-Slovakia-France) swept through many festivals where Mikhalin a major role. She played the girl exposed to domestic violence and bullying peers, who avenged his sufferings to the world a very strange way.

Recall that on 8 February, the ROK Studio that produced the picture, and its General producer Alexey Uchitel filed to the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation statement. And has led to this Orthodox organization, “the Christian state of Holy Russia”, inciting the conflict over the movie “Matilda”. Its ideologues have accused the authors of “Matilda” insulting the feelings of believers. They mailed the letters, which threatened violence against those who intend to show a picture in cinemas. Alexei Uchitel explained his step: “at First we did not attach importance to the whole fuss around the film. But when militant fanatics allowed myself to make extremist statements, we were no longer able to ignore this aggression, because in danger of not only artwork, but also ordinary citizens. Now we are forced to seek assistance to governmental bodies that have the power to stop this extremism and protect our violated constitutional rights. Our movie before filming went through the expert Council of the Russian cinema Fund and was supported by them. At the moment our picture and her future wide release is actively supported Ministerstatutory of the Russian Federation. Unfortunately, statements of this corrupt and criminal organization in fact “Holy Russia” strangely coincided in time and tone with the statements of the Deputy of the state Duma, Ms. Polonskaya, which allowed a number of incompetent and deceitful comments, and obviously false denunciation about Commission of several crimes by the filmmakers. We believe that the Prosecutor General’s office will also assess the legal basis of the statements made by the legislator. We are working actively at the end of the film, computer graphics and the musical setting, once the picture is finished, we will show our film to all stakeholders, and is primarily our audience, and all questions will disappear by themselves. And the audience I am sure will appreciate the picture and see the respect we show Russia at the turn of the century and the fate of the last Emperor of Russia.”
