Alexander Pushkin wrote the short story “The Queen of Spades” in 1834 and now when I watch the movie “The Queen of Spades” made in 1916 I just feel the time what Pushkin is telling about with all this characters and dresses and interiors of that time! This is incredible. If you are interested to study Russian culture you must see it!

There is an information about The Queen of Spades, that original music is composed by Rafał Rozmus. The information is correct, but the music added to the movie not (it’s not a music of Rafał Rozmus). The original music is composed for the orchestra.
