Misha, also respectfully, I seem to hear it clearly at 1:19 and 1:47 for example. But I do trust your expertise in the language.

Lily, I hear what you're hearing at :02, very soft. Just a hint of the r.

This palace in the cartoon, was it modeled after the Terem Palace?

Misha, this movie is excellent and I hope that you don't mind that I've linked a version that has English subtitles. Sometimes the subtitles are a little lacking but viewers will be rewarded with a better knowledge of the time of Ivan the Terrible if you watch the movie.

You will also learn of another important Russian figure of that time, Orthodox Metropolitan Philip who opposed Ivan's violence.

Watched the whole movie in about 10 sittings.   Boring, even if they tried to gash as much blood and twisted ligaments as possible.  And Yankovksi…  OMG, I remember him being so handsome and young…  Time flies… 


I like this one better
