A glimpse into Odessa just after the Civil War.
2 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

A glimpse into Odessa just after the Civil War(1920) At the end of the Civil War, Odessa was in a unique situation. Just before the Soviet power became established in Odessa it changed hands more than TEN times. At one point there were "rope borders" strung up all over the city. Blocks were under control of different armies of many countries. 1)To extricate Russia from WWI, half of Ukraine was (temporarily) ceded to Germany and Austria; 2)Different (not united together) Ukrainian Nationalist forces free from the extinct Tsarist Empire; 3 Allies (each with their zone)--France, Britain, USA, etc.---that came as part of the anti-Bolshevik Intervention and many more "characters". The citizens would trip and break "borders" all day long. But fortunately this situation did not last long. ***ANOTHER ANACHRONISM: A witness is asked to identify a foreign agent as seen on a photograph. The photograph is of a man at the handlebars of a motorcycle. Even though one can only see handlebars for a few seconds, they are out of place in 1920. It is a 1942(!) Harley-Davidson WLA-45. How do I know this? It is my fathers motorcycle.(I was 6 years old then) BUT, I forgive a lot of the Soviet films that don't always have the correct historical props. Why? Because it is not always important. What's a lot more important is PLOT, DEEP HILOSOPHICAL MEANING, ACTING, ARTWORK. Also, this film gives a tiny glimpse into the peaceful years before WWI: youth, love, football(soccer). (It's not really a spoiler to mention that) the young militia officer and the criminal used to play on the same football(soccer) team before WWI.
