Madcap comedy set in early 20th century Kiev about a barber whose fondness for drink, gambling, and women lead to bankruptcy. He marries an ugly rich woman to solve his financial woes, but pines for a virtuous beauty who despises him.
I am first time watched "Admiral Nakhimov" on Russian TV when I was six or seven years old. At these days I was a big fan of epic naval adventures, and that movie easily became one of my favorites. Today, twenty years later, I watched my childhood favorite again. And you know what? It impress me again! I know that many people can say, that there is a lot of historical mistakes in that film. That is true. But also that movie is a great mix of battle epic and drama. There is an outstanding naval battles and truly breathtaking moments, like sinking of ships of the Russian Black Sea fleet in Sevastopol harbor, by his own sailors.
