Horrid Piece Of Propaganda
11 November 2015 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

It's 1993, Russia - the so-called The 90's are in full bloom, and the cinema business is in ruins, the movies made at this period are either vapid pieces of blood, blackness and wild stupid erotica, or some mind-numbing pseudo-intellectual languid drags. Another typical feature of that time was a clear anti-Soviet sentiment, which is not bad or good, well, it just was there. And yes, that was the time when everything ante-Revolution, ante-Lenin was considered good, fine and almost perfect. The Pale Horse ( a symbol of a Horse and Rider of Apocalypse) is a very very typical piece of such propaganda. Made in sickly sepia tomes, it depicts the story of Civil War and later, WWII in the viewpoint of those pro-White Guard, pro-Czarist naive supporters. Thus, all monarchical is shown there as sweet, ideal, and good. While the Bolsheviks are depicted as drunken, dirty, muddy, wild, brutal, hungry and horrid monsters. Well, yeah, some Whites are also shown as violent wanton killers, but... the tonality taken here is painfully wrong, the actors play horribly bad, and the slow tempo of the serial is killing, and numbing the brain. Shallow symbolism and very naive kiddish montage ideas make laugh, not suffer. Suffer, too, since the serial is so poor. One can watch it only as a example of 90's worst movies. To sit through 555 minutes of 10 episodes is far too much and far too unbearable. Rating - 0 (zero), but here 1 is for worst
