Question by David: Why is the Movie Anastasia so different to what really happened yet they can say based on a true story?
I felt sorry for the Russian Royal family & felt like crying when I watched the movie.Then I read what really happened & I got annoyed & now I feel sorry for Rasputin.
So I am still a bit confused what really happened & who was the bad guys/Girls?

The bad guys were the uneducated lot that took over the initial revolt which did have a certain amount of integrity and purity of action involved with it.
Thugs often do inexplicable things….murdering the Russian royal family was one of them. One can’t say that Russia has actually benefitted from the Revolution…..Industrialization would have occurred without Stalin,,,,the Dumas would have eventually become an entity similar to the United States Senate or the UK House of Commons…
There are probably few Russians who would not tell you that they would have preferred even a bad Tsar who provided a central point for their country to what has happened to them without the stabilizing influence of a monarch.
Their country is in shreds, and has been for a long, long time. It is sad considering what it might have been.
Thugs never act to the benefit of anything or anyone other than themselves….that is how you can pick them out..
Several questions have been asked lately concerning Anastasia. All of the answers contain detailed answers… spend a moment looking through open and resolved questions.
A short answer is that all the remains of the the last Tsar, his wife, and his children were eventually located. They were identified using DNA.
Anna Anderson was exhumed…and using DNA….was found not to have been a Romanov, but had DNA belonging to some peasant family.
Rasputin was one of the Lord’s oddities….and a case could be made either way as to whether he was a good person or not. Only God has the right to judge that.
