This film has a very patriotic purpose, that is to teach the Lithuanians the importance of the book and the written language. They show how hard it was back in 1869 to spread the Lithuanian books under the tsarist regime. That is well documented, so the film team had lots of sources to work on. And so this is supposed to be a "costume drama". But aside from the Russian gendarmerie what kind of costumes do we see? Those Lithuanian guys look rather like "forest brothers" from the 1950's. And the Russian gendarmes talk like the modern "gopniki", the low-class youth. Especially their "captain" is so recognizable as one of the junkies in another Lithuanin film hit, "Zero 1, alyvine Lietuva" with all those "scary" intonations and slang. But this is 1869! Well, I guess the Lithuanian viewers just don't concentrate on details like that, judging by the high score.
