Storyline

In WW2, after a tank battle, a wounded Soviet tank commander is taken to the hospital. He suffers from amnesia and has severe burns on his body. He secretly believes he can communicate with any tank, as if the tank were human. After being returned to duty, the tank-man proves to be one of the best tank-men in his unit. Rumors about a new, invincible Nazi tank, circulate. It's said that a huge Nazi tank often appears out of nowhere on the battlefield and it destroys dozens of Soviet tanks. The mysterious enemy tank is nicknamed White Tiger by the Soviet soldiers. Our tank-man, Naydenov, is convinced that it was the White Tiger that destroyed his Soviet tank and he wants revenge. Naydenov is ordered to find and destroy the White Tiger. But how can one find and destroy a ghost of war? Written by nufs68

shadow of myth
1 November 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a film about war. a surviver. a tank. a fight like Melville's Moby Dick. image of battle in smoke lens. and all ingredients for this type of movie. it is difficult to say if it is a good film or not. crumbs of many histories about last world conflict are stones in a not flat mount. all is at right place. but , in few moments, the tale is only a sketch.sure, a film far from usual cages of ideology or triumphalism is a nice work. tanks seduction is always fresh. but is it enough ? after a splendid story the final taste is almost bitter. because the final of confrontation is more delicate, the script puts in public imagination the solution. and it is not really fair ! conclusion - too many directions, a not inspired mixture between magic and war facts. but , however, it is not a disappointing experience. only a trip in the corners of a myth shadow.
