Trivia

There were no characters of Frau Saurich and Gabi in the original novel. Tatyana Lioznova's idea was that Frau Saurich could resemble Stirlitz of his mother and, reserved as he was, he could slightly reveal himself before her. Lioznova didn't like the scenes with Frau Saurich that Yulian Semyonov wrote and she decided she would rewrite the script during filming, but nevertheless, they showed the script to Faina Ranevskaya and she rejected the offer to play Frau Saurich. The role went to Emiliya Milton. Her lines were written right on set but Lioznova liked her performance so much that when some scenes with Milton were completed, Lioznova would sit down and write more. See more »

This is a jewel of spy cinema
31 August 1999 | by GodfatheSee all my reviews

I watched this movie many years ago with Spanish subtitles. I still remember the remarkable acting,intriguing action, and excellent scenography that transports the viewer to Germany during the nazi's years. The plot is very interesting beside of having some historical touches.In a now gone URSS's book compiling secret correspondence between Stalin and other head of states, the former Soviet dictator mentioned Maxim, a soviet spy "planted" in the high ranks of nazy's Germany during the war years. Seventeen Moments of Spring is an excellent movie that I personally would like to enjoy again if it were available with English subtitles in video stores in our country.
