Storyline

The film is set in St. Petersburg, Russia after the Russian revolution of 1917. Based on the eponymous book by Boris Lavrenev. Maj. General Yevgeni Pavlovich Adamov (Popov) was a lawyer in the Tzar's Army and a professor of law at the Military Academy before the Russian Revolution. In the fall of 1918 he was arrested on false accusations and suffered the loss of all his property and honors. During the turbulent times of Revolution he managed to use all his experience and professionalism to prove his innocence. He was released from prison and all charges against him were dropped. He became a free man, but the reality is changed, and his adaptation to the post-revolutionary life was not easy. Written by Steve Shelokhonov

The story of a very strong man
3 March 2006 | by (Archangel, Russia) – See all my reviews

This is a sad and very humane story about a very strong man. Black and white scenery makes things more and more depressing throughout the movie. Both sides - "beliye" and "krasniye" - are shown without stupid praise (cf. "Bronenosets Potyomkin"). There are no winners in a civil war - this film hits this mark perfectly. One important thing about the movie: the main character seems to be a real Christian (he tries hard to help others, he neglects violent offence, he seeks and defends the truth and justice even in the face of death, and he never grieves). He never preaches but he leads his life in such way that you say to yourself: "Would never have guts to do it!" or "Would never have patience to endure it!" And what is more, it is really a beautiful movie to see.

Would never put "Bronenosets Potyomkin" on the top list. As to this movie - it belongs to this list, even if it is not there yet. It is so much more than entertainment.

Sincerely, 10 out of 10. Thank you for attention.
