The film immerses viewers in Christmas Petersburg in 1899. The city is preparing for the holiday, and on its ice-bound rivers and canals, life is literally in full swing. It is precisely in this magical atmosphere that people from completely different worlds meet by chance – the daughter of a major dignitary Alice and the son of a lamplighter Matvey.
This meeting completely changes the lives of Alice and Matvey. They fall in love, share with each other difficult stories from their lives and dream of a joint future. However, Alice's parents intervene in the plans of the lovers – they introduce the daughter to a wealthy Arkady, who quickly makes the girl a marriage proposal.Sophia Priss in the movie "Silver Skates"Fedor Fedotov in the movie "Silver Skates"Alexey Guskov in the film "Silver Skates"Frame from the film "Silver Skates"

Filming took place in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region from January to May 2019, while most of the work went on frozen rivers and canals of the city. Especially for the shooting of historical samples, skates were made, as well as carriages, sleighs and cars of the beginning of the last century. And to make the picture look even more authentic, not only the main actors, but also a crowd of several hundred people, wigs and costumes were sewn.
Our story is that love is stronger than any obstacles. And that you definitely need to follow your dream. Naturally, these are eternal themes, but we tried to give them a completely modern look inside historical cinema. Now, it seems to me, there are many parallels with that time, and I hope that in characters and ups and downs, viewers will find a lot in common with our reality,
– said the director Mikhail Lokshin.
A beautiful Christmas tale will be released in early 2020 – the premiere of the picture is scheduled for February 13!Sophia Priss and Kirill Zaitsev in the movie "Silver Skates"Sophia Priss in the movie "Silver Skates"
