Storyline

The Bomber (2011) / (Russian language title: Ballada o Bombere) Storyline During World War II, a soviet aircraft crashes on Nazi-occupied territory. But the pilot Grivtsov and his beloved radio operator Katya miraculously survive. Another survivor is flight navigator Linko, who ejected from the plane. Each of them has to find his way and perform military tasks, return to his own forces and simply to stay alive. The situation becomes more complicated because of an act of sabotage, which has been committed before their take-off at the aerodrome. Honest Grivtsov gets on the bad side of the colonel of SMERSH by defending his friends. Instead of being granted a medal "Star" for his 100th flight, he is pronounced a traitor and is to be executed.

Trivia

The squadron is flying the Tupolev Tu-2 bomber. It is considered by many authorities to be one of the best high-speed medium bombers of WWII, easily rivaling other comparable contemporary bombers, such as the Junkers Ju-88 flown by the Germans. Designed by Andrey Tupolev in the late 1930s when he was a political prisoner, its success is credited as one of the factors that led to his early release in 1944. See more »

Goofs

During the air combat scene, a German fighter plane is identified as a "Messerschmitt". The plane in the scene is anything but - the cockpit canopy, the tail section, and the overall silhouette are wrong. The plane have more similarities with the Heinkel He-100, but that aircraft didn't see service on the Eastern Front. See more »

The ballad
16 April 2015 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This was one of the greatest movies I have ever watched. Absolutely amazing. It is definitely longer than your average eat-popcorn-drink- soda-sleep-on-the-couch movie. But it has everything you might expect from a movie so long: you have the story of a Soviet pilot during WW2 which finds himself in enemy's territory. Then, you have the guerrilla wars between the Nazis and the Soviets. Also, the friendships formed during war, the life of civilians during these times and of course, the best of them all, the main love story which is absolutely brilliant. Recommended for anyone who has some spare hours and wishes to see a masterpiece!
