Morphine (2008) is a Russian film by Aleksei Balabanov
The film is based on semi-autobiographical short stories by Mikhail Bulgakov:
The film takes place in the early 20th century. A young Russian doctor called Mikhail Polyakov arrives at a small hospital in a remote village. Having freshly graduated from medical school, with little experience, he is the only doctor in the rural district. He works hard, earning the respect of his small staff (one paramedic and two nurses).
After an allergic reaction to a diphtheria vaccination, he has his nurse Anna give him morphine to negate the effects. Gradually he slips into addiction.

Романовы. Венценосная семья” (2000).

"The story of the tragic death of the last Russian Emperor and his family unravels during the period from February 1917 to July 1918. Nicholas II never had a personal desire to be in power, but became an Emperor due to the laws of succession to the throne. Being a complete stranger to the idea of revolution, he involuntary became its co-author. This is the essence of his personal tragedy, which became a tragedy of his family and his people. However, he has found his genuine greatness as a simple family man, once the burden of power was off." (x)
