Storyline

The film tells the story of the Podolsk cadets' heroic stand outside Moscow in October 1941. Cadets from the Podolsk infantry and artillery schools were sent to the Ilyinsky line of defense, fighting alongside units from the Soviet 43rd Army to hold back the German advance until reinforcements arrived. Hopelessly outnumbered, young men in their teens laid down their lives in a battle lasting almost two weeks to obstruct the far superior German forces advancing towards Moscow. This film is not only about war. It is also about love, true camaraderie, and the path from boyhood to manhood. Around 3,500 cadets and their commanding officers were sent to hold up the last line of defense outside Moscow. Most of them remained there for eternity.

truly great movie.
23 April 2021 | by grant_sneddonSee all my reviews

The movie is lossly based on the true events in the defense of moscow.

The movie is in insight into the harts and minds of the Russian people. It is nice to watch a movie that is not about how the americans saved the day or Bruce willis killing 1000 people with only on handgun.

The story tells of how the Russian people were willing to give up everything to defend the motherland from an ivading force.
