Excellent movie which show the reality of our Church
13 March 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I don't understand why any Westerner would give low votes for this film and say it's biased. But i guess Antonio from Ireland is Atheist. The only reality was that the Orthodox Church suffered great persecution by the atheistic regime of Communism, during Lenin or Stalin. Ask any Russian. The films is based on real facts. In Russia, Ukraine, Romania the Orthodox Church was persecuted and suffered murders and genocide. The movie is a part of that reality which affected Russia from 1919 to 1980s. I believe the director created a masterpiece and the rating is not real, reflecting the anti-Orthodox rhetoric of today. The film music is impressive, the dialogue, the landscape. The complex representation of the society between Nazis, ordinary Russians, Orthodox faith and Communists. I don't know why these kind of films which shows the reality of that era are so hated by some people. This film should have taken prizes for the director creativity.
