Good but with strong horror scenes

Very beautiful music, scenes, story. But the Rasputin scenes are plain horror for a kid, even if just cartoon. So I think it's not for children of any age.

A movie with a Russian heroine

Russian heroined or even females period re not very common in cartoonsm It's nice to see that in here and other cartoons like Barbie Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Swan princess. Intense at times.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
