Barber Of Siberia, The
€5.10 for 1 pcs.
- The film’s action takes place over a hundred years ago, during the rule of Alexander III. “The Barber of Siberia” is a steam-engined, self-propelling saw-mill for manufacturing of which the dreamer and adventurist McCracken (Richard Harris) tries to get a commission from appropriate Russian state authorities. Jane (Julia Ormond) is dispatched to help McCracken in the disguise of his daughter who would blackmail the officials of the Commission on Technical Innovations. On her way she meets Cadet Andrey Tolstoy (Oleg Menshikov) and his comrades. Jane’s Moscow target is to be the head of the cadet school General Radlov (Alexei Petrenko) who also happens to be Deputy Chairman of the Commission. The General gets enamored with the beautiful foreigner. However, her love preference is Andrey. The latter, with the fervor typical of a Russian officer, reciprocates. The showdown takes place… in the theatre. Andrey, playing the part of Figaro in a student production of “The Barber of Seville”, overcome by jealousy, attacks Radlov directly from the stage. Unfortunately for Andrey, the performance is attended by Czarevich Mikhail and Grand Duke Alexei Alexandrovich (Yevgeny Steblov), and Tolstoy ends up being accused of an attempt on their lives. The shackled former cadet is sent to Siberia, followed there by his servant Dunyasha (Anna Mikhalkova) who is madly in love with him. Will Andrey ever see Jane and… his son?
