The story of a very strong man
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.
