I saw it a couple of times. This is my favorite movie made in Ukraine. Don't think that Ukrainian movies are dull. If you haven't seen the Propavsha Gramota you haven't seen Ukrainian films at all! This is the film based on the story of the famous writer Nikolay Gogol who was interested in Ukrainian traditions and culture. "The Lost Letter" is a funny story.... sometimes even hilarious - if of course you understand humor. Mykolaychuk acted greatly in this film. On my opinion this is his best work.... This film showed Zaporizhya kozaks the way simple people saw them those days - strong, skillful in arms, bold and valor. It begins with the battle and return of kozak Vasyl home where he is given the assignment to bring the document to the Emperatrice of Russia Elizabeth. He finds a friend and they both travel to St. Petersburg to deliver the "Gramota" to the Emperatrece....As it is described on the DVD - A heroic comedy with a blasting humor tells the story of the trip made by Vasyl and Adrew delivering the letter from Hetman to Russian Tzarutsya, and after all their happy return to their native Dekanka. All the other things are to be seen with your own eyes.
