It is a unsuccessful screen version. Fights and if film consists half of war it is shown as old shootings 50 years ago are very badly made. Actors are good, but that pathos of patriots is far-fetched.
It is not present at Gogol. The director did not know my opinion that on a genre will be better and has drowned all in blood.
The big minus that if a trick master has been expelled from movie by director. It is a minus to the director who cannot work on modern movie.
And the result of visually beautiful duels is a parody of the battle. It is attempt to make rigid cinema ridiculous when you see as fight on a background cossacks. For the main heroine have forgotten to write the text - it only laughs. Each cossack considers as the duty (before death) to tell pathos words. But they are unnatural in such situation.
I am assured, that it is cinema 25000000 dollars are not necessary
