The story of a man fighting for Ukrainian independence during and after WW2. The story line is similiar to Michael Collins and Braveheart, and covers a time that had been repressed by the Soviets till the fall of the USSR. The good parts of the film are the opening that sets the story, and the ending sequence which builds a good deal of tension. Also good are the performances of several of the supporting players, including a Russian major that washes himself in the middle of the film, and a Russian Colonel that is tailing the hero.
The bad parts are the fact that the film looks like a low budget American educational film from the 1970's. This is not a comment on the filmmaker's talent, just on the limited technology available. Also, all of the battle scenes are badly choreographed. I'd give the movie a weak 7.
