Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Anastasia

In the early 1900s, evil monk Rasputan (Lloyd) put a curse on Czar Nicholas Romanov and his family. Rasputan was killed as was Nicholas. Every Romanov was killed that night, except the Grand Duchess and Nicholas' daughter Anastasia. Anastasia was lost after she bumped her head at the train station and missed the train. No one saw her again. Years later, a former servant boy (the one who helped Anastasia and the grand Duchess escape the palace) turned con artist Dimitri, with his partner Vladimir (Grammar), find out that the Duchess is offering a reward to anyone who can find Anastasia. Demitri and Vladimir hold auditions. Menwhile, an orphan girl named Anya (Ryan) has found her way to St. Petersberg and ran into Dimitri and Vladimir. She resembles Anastasia so much that they try to convince her to go with them to the Duchess. Rasputan's old pet, an albino bat named Bartok (Azaria) finds Rasputan. He's dead, but he's stuck in limbo. His curse is unfulfilled and he won't be at peace untill all the Romanovs are dead. Rasputan knows that Anya is, in reality, Anastasia! He's also falling apart, litarally! He still has the same mind and powers, but physically he's a rotting corpse. Dimitri is also staring to suspect that Anya might be the real thing. Funny fantasy
