Trivia

Tatyana Lioznova is sure that Stirlitz's part would have "brought glory to any actor. Everything - the plot, the actors - worked for one character, Stirlitz. I told Tikhonov during filming, "Oh, Slava, this role will bring you stardom overnight!" See more »

This is a jewel of spy cinema
31 August 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie many years ago with Spanish subtitles. I still remember the remarkable acting,intriguing action, and excellent scenography that transports the viewer to Germany during the nazi's years. The plot is very interesting beside of having some historical touches.In a now gone URSS's book compiling secret correspondence between Stalin and other head of states, the former Soviet dictator mentioned Maxim, a soviet spy "planted" in the high ranks of nazy's Germany during the war years. Seventeen Moments of Spring is an excellent movie that I personally would like to enjoy again if it were available with English subtitles in video stores in our country.
