Armor and Sword, a film about another secret agent from USSR in nazi Germany
This is another film about Soviet services of intelligence in nazi Germany. This time the hero of the film is an agent infiltrated by the Soviets in the Baltic countries already occupied by nazis. Although the film was made unreasonably black and white it showed masterfully how the agent was able to introduce himself in high positions of German army. He could also monitor any movement harmful to the position of the Red Army at the time of its offensive by 1944. Instead of having a serial of action as usual in American-made films, the film catch you from the very beginning as a nearly realistic thriller. No less amazing is the end when the Soviet troops entered in Berlin and the hero tried to make free several prisoners.
