Flitting through 33 rooms, occupied by over 2,000 costumed characters, this is a moving tableau chronicling both momentous events and intimate incidents from Russian history - from the pomp of Peter and Catherine The Great, to the fall of the Tsars and the revolution.
Russian Ark won't appeal to everyone, but anyone with an eye for beauty, a yearning for the past or a passion for pure cinema is going to be spellbound.
