Simple story superbly well told
23 February 2017 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithania.

"The Rifleman of the Voroshilov Regiment" (1999) is a very simple movie, but a very good one at the same time. The story here is crystal clear, but it is the good script, great acting by Mikhail Ulyanov and crystal clear directing what makes this movie work. It is a very "local" story, but it could have been anywhere in a world, the story here is universal, far by any moons from anything original, but its a good movie making what is the most important, and "The Rifleman of the Voroshilov Regiment" has one.

Overall, "The Rifleman of the Voroshilov Regiment" is a simple yet very good movie. It is highly involving and crystal clear story. Very good movie all around.
