Revisions of History

The director Ozerov is a well-known master of ideologically correct cinematography, and this movie is no exception. The times had changed, by 1995 the Soviet Union was no more, the history was being designed to serve the new masters. In certain respect, the cult of Zhukov, thus making him #1 Soviet military leader in WWII is nothing new, its the reiteration of one of the lines from 1950s, when the marshal was still alive and before he was deemed too dangerous figure in the internal communist party struggles. New Russia brought him back in full. I am not here to deny Zhukov's importance in the victory. The main flaw in all this is that to the present day the soviet army's doctrine has complete disregard for human lives of its soldiers, the generals are supposed to send them in mass to another meat-grinder and take the credit. This feudal system changed little over the years and is radically different from the modern day western approach. So basically here we go again, a bit dusted off same answers and same ministry of defense propagandist view of the war that existed through the whole soviet era, minus open praises to the genius of comrade Stalin ever since XX party congress. In the meantime the documentary hard truth is locked away in the archives, inaccessible to this day. Instead of a proper humanistic praise to millions of dead soldiers the country idolizes the military leadership that caused and did nothing to minimize these enormous losses first place. One should learn something from history. Failure to do so has its price. In 2009, now, the price of ignorance is steeper than ever. This film in the worst soviet tradition perpetuates the grand lie. Welcome to the prequel to WW III, we all live in it again.
