Defending the Motherland.
24 October 2019 | by brogmillerSee all my reviews

Although considered for some unearthly reason a 'minor work' of Fridrikh Ermler's this is a gripping story of a woman who becomes a partisan leader after having seen her husband and son slaughtered by the Germans. Sterling camerwork by Wulf Rapaport and a powerful score by Gavril Popov with a stupendous performance by Vera Maretskaya for whom the part was written.
