He started out as a servant boy and showed them a secret passageway in Anastasia's room. When the villainious Rasputin sold his soul in exchange and casts a curse on the Romanov family in revenge, she sends Anastasia and her grandmother to a moving train to save their lives. Ten years later, he is now a con man along with his best friend and partner, Vladimir. They are in search of an Anastasia look-alike now called "Anya".  Anya leaves the orphanage after she has lost her memory before arriving here.  He first met Anya, who was impressed by resembling the "real" Anastasia and decide to take her with them. After an encounter with demonic spirits sent by Rasputin, he, Vladimir, Anya and Pooka entered paris to meet Marie, but Marie refuses to see her.  Sophie quizzes her to confirm her identity and Dimitri and Vladimir taught her all the answers as Sophie invites him, Vladimir and Anya to go to the Russian Ballet and Dimitri realizes that she is the real Anastasia. That night, he, Vladimir and Anya went to see the Russian Ballet for the first time and Dimitri suggests that Anya will be reunited with her grandmother after the Ballet is over. When Marie tells Dimitri that she wants nothing to do with him and have a scheme to trick Anya when she tells Dimitri who he really is, Anya, who eavesdropped on the conversation, becomes really upset and accuses Dimitri of lying to her and using her as part of his con to get Marie's money. Dimitri tries to tell her that his intentions have changed because she is the real Anastasia, but she refuses to listen to him and angrily storms out. Still determine to show Anastasia the truth, he drives Marie to the house where Anastasia is packing her belongings and after the two sung the song from Anastasia's childhood, the two were happily reunited. The next day, Dimitri refuses to accept the money because he loves Anastasia more and decided to go back to Russia and when he realizes that someone is in danger, he arrives to stop Rasputin and saves Anya.  Anya is able to destroy Rasputin and Dimitri and Anya were able to reconcile after Anya discovers the truth as the two head back to Paris by the end of the film.
