Synopsis

This film is based on the adventurous namesake novel by Boris Akunin. The detective story takes place on the background of the old stately facades, snow covered alleys, in the luxurious living rooms and dark lanes of Moscow. High-ranking officials, bankers, terrorists, mysterious beauties and burglars: these characters at the end of the 19th century turn the history of the political murders into a spectacular festivity.
