Storyline

When the Soviet troops freed Ivan from the Nazi prison, he was charged with high treason and was facing long years in Siberian camps. Ivan did not want to die behind barbed wire or wait for an amnesty. Once he got an opportunity, he escaped from his camp. He was hunted high and low like the most wanted criminal and there was no place for him in the USSR. Based on the historical realities of those times, the film unfolds before the viewer a credible sequence of events that turned the Hero of the Soviet Union into a GULAG prisoner and then an Indian Chief. That is why the name Ivan Datsenko had to be changed for another - Firecrosser. Written by Andriy Suyarko

Authentic story from Soviet Ukraine
25 January 2012 | by (Kyiv, Ukraine) – See all my reviews

Ukraine is not famous with its movies but this one has potential to touch many hearts.

It's based on a true story but it's not a story of one man. Similar stories happened to many Soviet officers and soldiers after the WWII so it gives you a sense of that epoch. It's adventurous and at the same time romantic, historical and modern and has a touch of Ukrainian authentic culture.

Behind intricate plot are existential topics: love and loyalty, friendship and betrayal, religion, nation and language.

It's a beautiful combination of mystic scenes, subtle humour, powerful characters and cultural ideas.
