Sovereign's Servant (Sluga Gosudarev) 2007

Short trailer with some of the battle scenes of this recent Russian epic set in 1709. I'd be interested to hear some of your views of this movie - I got very excited about it but I know Great Northern War buffs weren't overly impressed. It's certainly unusual to see battle scenes of this era on the big screen even if the end result is a bit 'dodgy' as we English say. Maybe it's what I call the 'Sharpe' syndrome - those people who really know the period hate it for the inaccuracies whereas everyone thinks it's wonderful. Most of the IMdb comments are to this effect too. Available on international DVD
