Lithuanian classic
25 October 2004 | by (Vilnius, Lithuania) – See all my reviews

One of the greatest Lithuanian movies of all times tells us about the cruel reality of Lithuania right after the World War II, when the country is occupied by the Soviet Russia, few, but strong guerrillas still resist in the woods, part of the population (mainly because of the fear of death or banishment) supports soviets, and as they say "a brother goes against a brother". Film is clearly pro-sovietic (it would be banned at those times otherwise), yet we can easily find pieces of symbolism, which indicates, that some moments are just a "forced art". Zalakevicius was one of the most talented Lithuanian scriptwriters and directors, and it shows. All of the scenes are superbly suggestive, sharp and artistical. All the actors (Adomaitis, Masiulis, Budraitis, Noreika, Banonis, etc.) look more than charizmatic, portraying exciting characters, precisely embeded in this 'macho' movie, at times called even Lithuanian "7 samurai". Haven't seen any of Lithuanian movies? At least watch this one when you have a chance.
