In 1919, during the post-revolution Russian Civil War, a naval detachment (made up of communist Reds) defends the strategic city of Petrograd from the White Russian counterrevolutionary forces. Director Yefim Dzigan had himself fought for the Bolsheviks in the fleet, so the Red sailors are the heroes of the film. The young Soviet State was besieged by enemies on all sides, and the Revolution was fighting for its life. While clearly propagandistic, the film is often quite poetic visually, not naturalistic as was prescribed by authorities at the time. The film was honored at the 1937 Paris World's Fair. The video version is in Russian with English subtitles. Written by Fiona Kelleghan <>

Surprisingly Well-Done and Very Interesting To Watch
25 February 2015 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Despite the fact that it was shot in 1936 and for many it is an example of Stalinist cinema, it is different from may films of the era and by the way, it is much better. There are several assets in this movie, shot wholly in stark black and white. 1. The plot. It is seemingly old, trite and banal - Civil War in Russia, 1919, near St. Petersburg, a group of Bolshevik sailors battle the White Guard and lose, then some very tragic events follow, then the main hero escapes and then there is a sort of revenge. But, the way the events are shows is very fresh, fast, cool and often humorous. 2. Warm humor permeates the movie throughout and thus saves this seemingly dark, tragic, dramatic work of pomposity. The depiction of several heroes is very deeply sympathetic and decent. 3. There are no rough and ready cloches here - even the Reds are shows as normal people with all the drawbacks, while Whites are suddenly even depicted with bigger amount of realism, even some empathy and realism. 4. The execution scene is probably The best ever shot in Soviet cinema of the whole period. 5. The film in fact was a revelation and paved the way to similarly great movies of 3 decades later. Highly recommended
