Storyline

Moonzund (1987) is based on the eponymous book about the Russian Navy in the 1915-1917 WWI battles at the Moonzund Islands in the Baltic Sea. Two dramas are intertwined here - The World War 1 and The Great Love. Russian battleship "Novik" led by Captain Artenyev (Oleg Menshikov) wins a battle against the German ships. Captain Artenyev is in love with a beautiful lady-spy Klara (Lyudmila Nilskaya). They cannot be together because of the war and their professions. But they are in such love that all the war battles and battleships do not stop them, only their duties do. With a bearable dose of revolutionary propaganda. Written by Steve Shelokhonov

"Moonzund" is based on a novel by Valentine Pikul. It is a great war film about an incident that happened during World War I on a small island Moonzund, several miles of shore from Saint Petersburgh, Russia. Russian sailors defended this island and the city of Saint Petersburgh from the advancing German Fleet. This movie also explores the events leading to the Communist Revolution in 1917 and shows different mind sets of sailors and officers of the Russian Navy, and their loyalty to each other, and Russia.
