Goofs

The movie has a scene with the Estonian consulate in Leningrad, dated November 29, 1924. There is an angry crowd, and among the many insults it shouts, several times fascists are mentioned. This is unlikely for 1924, as the word came in use as a pejorative in Russia only in World War II, after the German attack in 1941. See more »
