The worst and most false historic film ever made
8 October 2005 | by dantooine69See all my reviews

This terrible film is a good example of how soviet movie makers served to the Stalin's regime. It's a typical soviet film having completely nothing to do with the historic true. Remarkable it was made in 1939, the year when Red Army together with Hitler's troops invaded Poland; so the main purpose of Pudovkin's movie was obvious - to show how savage and cruel were Polish occupants of Moscow's Kremlin in the beginning of 17th century. In the last film scene we see Polish cavalry, hussard's, escaping from a battlefield. In reality, during the battle of Kluszyn (04th July 1610)30 000 Russians escaped quickly after a short battle against 7000 Polish Army - this example shows how historical truth was shown in this "masterpiece".
