Storyline

Based on the first of a trilogy by Tom Rob Smith and set in the Stalin era of the Soviet Union. The plot is about an idealistic pro-Stalin security officer who decides to investigate a series of child murders in a country where supposedly this sort of crime doesn't exist. The state would not hear of the existence of a child murderer let alone a serial killer. He gets demoted and exiled but decides, with just the help of his wife, to continue pursuing the case. Written by Arnold

Well done film
17 April 2015 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

This movie is shining the light on part of history that has received very little attention from Hollywood. I thought that the drab imaginary in this movie was well done and sometimes wasn't drab enough. There is really nothing controversial in this movie unless you are have nostalgia for Soviet Union and Stalin as many Russians experiencing today. The movie does mention Holodomor, Stalin's policy of starvation against the Ukrainians. Also, in one of the scenes it show a Red army soldier wearing 5 watches suggesting that the watches were stole. The reality of the Battle of Berlin were much more gruesome with many rapes and murders of civilian women by the Red army soldiers. The phrase from the movie "mind polluted by the West" is something that was used in Stalin's time and is used in todays Russia. Only a Sovok would have problem with this film.
