the destiny of three people across a century. nothing original. only useful. because it is that kind of movie who reminds the art of Soviet cinema. using simple story. and political command as support for a drama with universal value. a war film. like many others. a film about family, duty, sacrifices and love for motherland. nothing new. but a film with an inspired cast, good script and wise mixture of slices of comedy and drama who saves the political clothes. and that fact does it a beautiful film. and one of the good occasions to discover again the past's events, the Soviet cinema's technical solutions, the emotion who transforms the film in experience. a beautiful film. and, maybe, an useful history lesson.
