Silver Skates

1899, the Christmas-time St.Petersburg. Ice-covered rivers and canals of the capital seethe with festive activities. On the eve of the new century those who should not be destined to meet, come together. They are people from different worlds: Matvey, the son of a lamplighter, whose only treasure is his silver-plated skates; Alice is the daughter of a high-ranking official dreaming of science. Each of them has his own difficult life-story, but having accidentally met they rush forward together in pursuit of their dreams.

    Such a sweet love-story movie from start to finish. The lovebirds are from opposite sides in terms of socio-economic status (family of orientation) in late 19th century Russia, but are parallel sweet souls (twin-flame soulmates) and both motivated to learn new things. The determination to work towards equality in education (women were predominantly denied higher ed at this time) is a strong theme besides the romantic love story. Some amazing costumes, settings, and stunts are also included. And of course the best possible Happy Ever After ending which is crucial (in my opinion).
