A version of a story about four youngsters who become heroes in the Russian Civil War. Danka, orphaned son of a Red Army agent, whose father was tortured and executed by the warlord Lyuty before his eyes, and his sister Ksanka join Valerka, a former schoolboy, and Yashka, a devil-may-care gypsy. They make a pledge of mutual assistance, determined to exact revenge on the bandits who are bringing so much suffering to peaceful villagers. The friends then embark on a series of daring adventures.Written by

My feelings while watching this movie? Guilty pleasure from observing this completely stupid, deceitful, calculated workpiece. Movie is full of Bolshevik ideology disguised as entertainment, fun and thrill, it steals aesthetics, situations, dialogues, characters and actions from westerns. Each villain wears no black top-hat and cutaway but Cossack uniform. Lively scenes are interlaced with idyllic takes or "profound" chit-chat - spectacular sentences pronounced by twelve year kids. Aim of this movie? Nothing more and nothing other than brainwashing. Copingstone - heroes riding away into giant, sanguine falling sun - made me laugh.
