Storyline

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 <fkelleghan@aol.com>

We Are From Kronstadt!

This film is available on video - I saw it as such during the early 90s. By way of brief synopsis, a group of sailors from Kronstadt rally to the Bolshevik cause and enlist to fight as naval infantry in the Civil War. After a few scraps they are captured, and would rather be driven at bayonet-point over the edge of a cliff than submit to the Whites.

If you are looking for other films in this genre, I would suggest 'Chapeyev'.
