One of the best films about WW2 aviation
31 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

The film describes actions of the soviet torpedo bombers over the Barents Sea. You'll feel ruthless horror of war and cold of the Northern seas. You'll see why torpedo bomber usually made only three battle flights. It is hard to beleave, but one of the last scenes of the film -- fire in the cockpit -- is ABSOLUTELY realistic. However, excellent use of the original chronicle film and air film shooting.
