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

promise
27 May 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a film from Ukraine. not spectacular but beautiful. expression of high ambition , it is a story who remembers more than present. because , like few good films from East is a form of testimony. and the fact who defines it is the courage to use different tools - humor and slices of magic are basic bricks - for a story not credible at whole but interesting in its message. more than a film, it is demonstration of a young cinema school with a long tradition. and exercise to defines it. far to be perfect, it is important step for a different cinema. and that fact is the good point who transforms it in precious travel to affirmation. the meeting between cold past and myths are always risky. in this case it is inspired foundation for a movie with role of promise. because, despite errors, it is encouraging message from Kiev.
