Excellent film
27 November 2006 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I can't agree with previous contributor. This 'terrible' film is an epic tale made by the creator of 'Mat (Mother)' and 'The End of St. Petersburg'. It resembles Eisenstein's 'Alexander Nevsky' made a year before it, it is a propaganda film and a work of art at the same time. Performances are top-notch, the editing is impressive, battle sequences are magnificent. As for historical truth (see Britannica, for example) Moscow was occupied by the Poles in 1610. In May 1611 'ungrateful' Muscovites rioted and the invaders retreated into the Kremlin. The Russians under the leadership of Minin and Pozarsky forced the Poles to surrender in October 1612. Polish reinforcements under famous general Jan Chodkiewicz escaped from the battlefield. I don't understand what the Polish victory in the battle of Kluszyn (1610) have to do with the Polish defeat two years later, seems not more than Austerlitz have with Waterloo.
