Story of love and war
24 August 2001 | by kuznetsov-1See all my reviews

Touching story about love of a young romantic man (Zhenia), who is a soldier of Guard Mortar Division (Division of "Katusha" Reactive Mortars) and a girl-telegraphist (Little Zhenia) at the last months of WW II. Some funny scenes from Soviet Army everyday life however was considered by former USSR bureaucracy as offensive to national military history, thus the movie was not allowed for many years. Watching the movie you see the war by eyes of indeed a Moscow boy who being a soldier is out of war in his dreams. He does not let the war into his soul making feats of arms and not understanding this. The last winter of the greatest war is over, a new spring with new dreams comes on, and it seems that all troubles left behind and only best days of love and happiness wait for Zhenia and Little Zhenia, but even the last days of the war can be tragic.
