pirates. and brave Soviet people
10 June 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The basic temptation - to compare it with the American hijaking films. the basic sin - to ignore the context when it was made. and, not the last, to ignore the story. sure, many cliches. and fight scenes. and the brave sailors . but the film is more than part from a too familiar series. it is nice, unrealistic - so amusing, chaotic and full of precise pieces of Soviet entertainment . result - its succes. and the perspective from today about a new tool of propaganda in Brezhnev era.
