The story of a very strong man

10/10
Author: Andrei Pavlov from Archangel, Russia
3 March 2006

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.
