Your Highness...

There was a time, not very long ago,

when we lived in an enchanted world

of elegant palaces and grand parties.

The year was 1916

and my son Nicholas

was the Czar of lmperial Russia.

Hello, darling.

We were celebrating the 300th anniversary

of our family's rule.

And, that night, no star burned brighter

than that of our sweet Anastasia,

my youngest granddaughter.

She begged me not to return to Paris,

so I had a very special gift made for her

to make the separation easier for both of us.

For me?

Is it a jewellery box?

Dimitri. You belong in the kitchen.


It plays our lullaby.

You can play it at night

before you go to sleep

and pretend that it's me singing.

On the wind

'Cross the sea

Hear this song and remember

Soon you'll be home with me

Once upon a December

Read what it says.

"Together in Paris."

Really? Oh, Grandmamma.

But we would never be together in Paris,

for a dark shadow had descended

upon the house of the Romanovs.

His name was Rasputin.

We thought he was a holy man,

but he was a fraud,

power-mad and dangerous.

How dare you return to the palace?

But I am your confidant.

Confidant? Hah!

You are a traitor. Get out!

You think you can banish the great Rasputin?

By the unholy powers vested in me,

I banish you with a curse.

Mark my words.

You and your family will die

within the fortnight.

I will not rest until I see the end

of the Romanov line for ever!

Consumed by his hatred

for Nicholas and his family,

Rasputin sold his soul

for the power to destroy them.


Fulfill your dark purpose

and seal the fate of the Czar and his family

once and for all.

From that moment on, the spark

of unhappiness in our country

was fanned into a flame

that would soon destroy our lives for ever.

- Help!

- Hurry, children.

- My music box.

- Anastasia!

Come back! Come back!


- Please, hurry.

- Come this way. Out the servants' quarters.

- Hurry, Anastasia.

- Rasputin, she's getting away.

- My music box.

- Go! Go!

Comrades, in here!

Where are they, boy?

- Grandmamma...

- Keep up with me, darling.

- Rasputin!

- Let me go. Please!

You'll never escape me, child. Never!



Anastasia, hurry. Hurry.

- Grandmamma!

- Here, take my hand.

- Hold onto my hand.

- Don't let go!



So many lives were destroyed that night.

What had always been

was now gone for ever.

And my Anastasia, my beloved grandchild,

I never saw her again.

Saint Petersburg is gloomy

Saint Petersburg is bleak

My underwear got frozen

standing here all week

Since the Revolution

our lives have been so grey

Thank goodness for the gossip

that gets us through the day

Have you heard

there's a rumour in Saint Petersburg?

Have you heard

what they're saying on the street?

Although the Czar did not survive,

one daughter may be still alive

The Princess Anastasia

But please do not repeat

It's a rumour, a legend, a mystery

Something whispered in an alleyway

or through a crack

It's a rumour that's part of our history

They say her royal grandmamma

will pay a royal sum

To someone who can bring the princess back

- Vlad!

- Dimitri.

A rouble for this painting

It's Romanov, I swear

Count Yusupov's pyjamas -

comrades, buy the pair

I got this from the palace,

it's lined with real fur

It could be worth a fortune

if it belonged to her

Well, Dimitri, I got us a theatre.

Everything's going according to plan.

All we need is the girl.

Just think, Vlad, no more forging papers,

no more stolen goods.

We'll have three tickets out of here: One
