new in socialistic film industry
6 May 2000 | by (Nis, Yugoslavia) – See all my reviews

After WWII in socialrealistic countries films from west was forbidden. But hunger of public for films was great as in countries from the west, especially for action films and western. In Yugoslavia communist authorities try with some action films called "partiaznski filmovi" (partisan films) made substitution for actions films from west. In this manner made this film. But Yugoslavia was something else from others countries behind "iron curtain" and filmmakers have some kind of freedom in they artistic attempt. This film was one in the series of action films (partizanski filmovi) where with some most popular actor in this time in Yugoslavia, Aleksandar Gavric ( whose appearance remind on film stars from USA) , made brake trough in freedom in social realistic film industry. Story based on realistic event was presented to the public in the manner of good action film, of course in regard to place and time where and when was made. The sixties was years when Tito opened Yugoslavia's borders and film from the West Europe (Italian and French films) and USA come back in Yugoslav's movie theaters but partisans films stay with they popularity together with best films from the west for most film fans in Yugoslavia. This film for me has historical value as artistic because it describe some realistic event in the time of WWII and describe time when this film was made.
