Product Overview

In Siberia, at the beginning of our century, a coachman became famous for his miraculous healing powers. He made the blind see and just by laying of his hands he relieved many peasants from their pain. In all of Russia, Giorgi Jefimowitsch Rasputin was considered a holy man. In the cities, however, the aristocracy laughed at him and called him a fake. But there was something else that made the mighty Rasputin even more popular in St. Petersburg and Moscow - his supernatural, wondrous potency. Able to satisfy ten or more women in a single night, he was so good they would come back...begging for more!

Reviews
ReviewSource eFilmCritic.com
Review This Russian language film serves as a triumph in film acting, with Alexei Petrenko not just playing the mad monk, but channeling and becoming him...Alexei Petrenko is excellent as Rasputin. He has straggly hair, a patchy long beard, and the same piercing stare that apparently wooed the ladies of the time. Rasputin sinned and sinned and sinned, all in the name of purging his own demons at the request of God. He was truly insane, and Petrenko brings that out right away...The direction, by Klimov, is wonderful. He shows Rasputin's own madness, as scenes shift from color to black and white, then back again...Again, Petrenko is perfection. This is subtitled, but nothing is lost in the translation. Petrenko becomes Rasputin without resorting to theatrical tricks and showy acting. He was not looking for film awards, he was looking to bring one of history's most infamous men to life, briefly.
