I love Anastasia but they get so much shit wrong and I had to talk about it.
As a history major currently studying Soviet Russia I would like to formally bless this post
History majors have a hard time just sitting and enjoying period pieces….especially with others
"Wait a second…that’s not right…"
^ You understand me friend
I was about to be like “jeez it’s just a cartoon” but nearly died laughing at this post multiple time. read this post. it’s good post
If I remember correctly (watched a documentary when the movie came out when I was a kid) the whole “legend of the missing princess” thing with Anastasia came from the fact that her body (and the body of her little brother) took many years to find, and in the meantime there was a woman who surfaced claiming to be Anastasia and people ate it up despite the fact that she didn’t speak a single fucking word of Russian, and it took FOREVER to formally debunk her claims. She lived out the rest of her days believing this, however.
But yeah, Anastasia and her brother were found decomposing in a forest and were shot to death — pretty much at the same time as the rest of their family.
Reblogged because this movie made me very cross. It’s much less the inaccuracy qua inaccuracy as the attitude behind the inaccuracy; mud-slinging intellectual sloth and active disinterest.
