Fairly thickly fictionalised HBO treatment with some richly beautiful depictions of Russian Orthodox cathedral services and palace interiors. They must have had a great art department. Alexei Romanov is one of those royals who exercise considerable fascination, like the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, who was the subject of three romanticised 'Sissi films' in the 1950s. Here Alexei narrates, and it's an intelligent narration by Freddie Findlay; a pity then that Findlay doesn't have more to do, as the meat of the screenplay goes to the adult actors, with the Tsarevitch little more than a plot device.
