Just came across this on Netflix while looking for Russian movies and shows to hone my language skills. Unfortunately it is not yet available (at least in Austria) but I set myself a reminder. The trailer looks rather intriguing, and there will be skating! 🥰 ⛸️
What I also found interesting, from Wikipedia:
Relatively unknown actors were cast in the main roles; the project was the first major film work for Fedotov and Priss, who are both from Saint Petersburg.
The actors had to go through sports training for the figure skating demands of the roles. Fedotov had been playing ice hockey from the age of three, but had to learn the different skating style during three months of intensive training. Almost all the stunts in the film were performed by Fedotov. The film also involved understudies (professional skaters) and stuntmen.

Wow, it's been quite a while since I saw a film that lacks everything I hate in films, especially Russian ones. Everything is temperate and appropriate there, including references, anachronisms and politics.

"You may find it hard to believe, but I am a liberal! I'm for equal rights for women in everything, including their voting rights."
"Ahem, we have no elections."

The story is nice too.
I only hope the English translation also lacks everything I hate in translations.

Hi,
I just have a question about the movie... Right on 1:55:22 (the start of the masquerade ball at the end) a music starts playing. This music was very familiar to me - https://youtu.be/OQKZ3-OpoXM?t=292 (4:52 - prologue - Anastazia animated movie). What is that? I could not find it in the Silver skates soundtrack so I am wondering if there is a whole song they both used for the movie or just some weird coincidence.

@daliz I don't know the answer to your question - I'm hoping one of our many knowledgeable posters does! But I wanted to welcome you to Golden Skate! Post long and post often!
