  1. Anastasia

    Anastasia is a 1956 American historical drama film directed by Anatole Litvak. Set in interwar France, the film follows the story of a suicidal amnesiac, whose remarkable resemblance to the Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia — the youngest daughter of the late Emperor Nicholas II who is rumored to have survived the execution of her family — draws her into a plot devised by the former White Russian General Bounine and his associates to swindle from the grand duchess an inheritance of 10 million pounds. However, the ultimate hurdle to their plan is the exiled Russian aristocracy — in particular the Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna — whom their handpicked claimant must convince of her legitimacy if they wish for their scheme to succeed. The origins of Anastasia lie in a play written by Guy Bolton and Marcelle Maurette, which was in turn inspired by Anna Anderson, the most famous of the many Anastasia impostors who appeared after the death of the Imperial family in July 1918. An animated remake of Anastasia was released by Fox Animation Studios in 1997; however, the stories have few similarities.

Of course, one had to make allowances for a very long illness ... All the same, my niece's features could not possibly have altered out of all recognition. The nose, the mouth, the eyes were all different. ... As soon as I sat down by that bed in the Mommsen Nursing Home, I knew I was looking at a stranger. … I had left Denmark with something of a hope in my heart. I left Berlin with all hope extinguished.

    Is this a dynamic (Anastasia) really wanted? I don't think it was, so it does come off as something that was unwanted and not enthusiastically desired.
