Stunning WWII flying sequences as the Soviet Air Force battles the Luftwaffe. Veteran Russian pilots teach their new recruits about life, death & love. When the older men fly into battle, will the young pilots be ready to fight - and how many will return?Written by
This movie is only interesting as a Russian/Soviet cultural curiosity. It is a 1974 movie of a Soviets pilots fighting the Germans in the Ukraine. It's 95% talk, 5% action, mostly stock footage a that. If hoping to see a war action movie, even a hint of one, this is not the movie. Talk, talk and more talk, and some singing as well. It's pretty boring. Watch this movie if interested in Russian/Soviet culture and language, or how WWII is seen in the eyes of Soviet 70s Russia.
