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.
