When Admiral Kolchak is addressing his troops in November 1918 at the Eastern Front, a variety of flags can be seen in the background, including an American flag that clearly has nine rows of stars. All American flags of this period had just six rows of stars; the US flag didn't contain more than six rows of stars until 1959, when on January 3 a seventh row was added to recognize Alaska's entry into the union, and on August 21 the stars were rearranged in nine rows in recognition of Hawaii's entry.

The film focuses on the love story between Admiral Kolchak and Anna Timiryova, in the context of the tragic events of the Russian revolution and civil war. And rightly so, the main feature is the love story, while history is left to the background.
It also does not focus on the life of Anna Timiryova after Kolchak's death - she has been arrested six times and spent long years in the Gulag. But she always remembered the two tragic years when she had been able to be with her lover.
The lyrics of the theme song are one of Anna Timiryova's poems. Unfortunately a film cannot focus on poetry, but it should be remembered that the Timiryova's poems have been compared the the poetry of Boris Pasternak.
And Boyarskaya really shows that she understood the tragism of Timiryova's fate.
