Storyline

In June 1941, the Emergency Headquarters of the Defense of Leningrad, under the leadership of Zhdanov and Voroshilov, decided to build the Luga defensive line. Heavy fighting west of Pskov forced part of the front to withdraw, and on July 9 - to leave Pskov. Fighting on the Luga direction restrained the enemy. The first attacks of the Germans, intending to overcome the Luga frontier on the move, were repulsed with great losses for them. Written by zoroman2008

Film over past tragic history of St.Petersburg city
19 February 2003 | by Dada_TonyaSee all my reviews

Hi !

This film is a bit different from other Soviet Union's super scale WWII films.

This film is considered as War film and it is correct. But also this film is a story of Leningrad citizens who seriously suffered during Blockade of the city 1941-43 and finally survived.

If you intend to visit St.Petersburg in Russia for sightseeing, I recommend to see this film in order to recognize tragic history of such a beautiful city with excellent peoples and cultures.
