Storyline

The series, based on a popular novel of the same name, depicts the exploits of a Russian spy Isaev, working undercover as Standartenfuhrer Stierlitz, in Nazi Germany during 17 days in very end of WWII. Stierlitz has worked his way to the very top of the RSHA, main Nazi security and intelligence agency, without being caught. However, his "colleagues", top Hitler's officers Bormann, Mueller, Schellenberg are beginning to suspect him. Stierlitz is constantly walking on the edge between his two identities, sending information to Russia, while skillfully maintaining the appearance of loyalty to Nazi regime.

Trivia

When the crew was about to shoot one of the scenes where Stirlitz talks to Pastor Schlag, it turned out Vyacheslav Tikhonov did not know his lines, so the crew gave them to him on paper and he read them up. The scene was shot in four takes although Tikhonov kept glancing at the sheet. See more »

Absolutely perfect! A must see.
20 February 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the top 10 movies for any Russian. Even if you are a foreigner, if you have subtitles or other mean of understanding the plot - you will be stick to your chair for all 11 (is it 11 or 13?) episodes.

The book of Semenov was great and the movie is even better. Great actors, who knew what the war is and how to show it. Amazingly intense plot, without any special effect, all rooted in the chess game between a Russian spy and German (nazi) opponents. Stylish black and white. In 1973 it was common, now it just looks good, as a true documentary.

What else? Music is perfectly suited to the moment and the whole movie is not seeking to draw a line between "good" and "bad" guys but, instead, trying to draw you into the tense atmosphere of the last 3 months preceding the end of WW2.

If you ask a few Russians in the street of Moscow or any other city what number 17 means to him, I bet $100 that over 90% will say "17 Moments of Spring" which stands for "Semnadtsat mgnovenij vesny".
