English Summary:

The Assassin of the Tsar (Russian: Цареубийца, romanized: Tsareubiytsa) is a 1991 Soviet drama film, starring Malcolm McDowell and Oleg Yankovsky.

Timofyev (Malcolm McDowell) is a patient in an asylum who claims to be the man who killed Tsar Alexander II in 1881, and his grandson Tsar Nicholas II in 1918. Doctor Smirnov (Oleg Yankovsky) decides to apply a peculiar therapeutic method on him, but things go in an unexpected way.

A good portion of the film depicts the last days of the Russian Imperial Family in Yekaterinburg, largely narrated by Timofyev's voice-over from the perspective of Yakov Yurovsky, the chief guard and ultimately executioner of the family. In the scenes, Yurovsky is impersonated by Timofyev (McDowell) and Tsar Nicholas II by Dr. Smirnov (Yankovsky). Other members of the family function merely as background, with few or no lines.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Timofejev, az elmegyógyintézet egyik ápoltja meg van győződve róla, hogy ő az, aki 1918-ban II. Miklós cárt és családját meggyilkolta. Megpróbálja meggyőzni orvosát, hogy meggyógyult, de az nem hisz neki. Mindketten az egykori gyilkosság helyszínére utaznak, hogy rekonstruálják a gyilkosságot...
