Storyline

The Invisible Front was the code name used by the Soviet Interior Forces for the armed resistance in the occupied territories of the former Soviet Union. This resistance sprang to life without almost any outside support in 1940 and again in 1944, continuing in various forms, armed and unarmed, until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. This is the story of one of the twentieth centuries most significant anti-soviet resistance movements, told through the words and experiences of one of its leaders, Juozas Luksa and his fellow Forest Brothers. The documentary seeks to provide an understanding of the dynamics of the armed and unarmed underground resistance through interviews and first time access to never been seen before archival footage. Its a ground breaking film of a dying heritage. We have conducted over 50 on camera interviews, including dignitaries such President Adamkus of Lithuania and President Zatlers of Latvia, CIA operatives and US government officials, as well as the many ...

A Thrilling Documentary
4 April 2015 | by John DSee all my reviews

We frequently hear of guerrilla warfare but don't often associate it with northern Europe in the 20th century. This "enhanced" documentary chronicles Lithuania's struggle against Soviet occupation following World War II, while at the same time developing a human story line around the real-life love of a partisan fighter and his new wife. Will he stay with her in Paris or will he cross back through the Iron Curtain to resume his struggle for his country's freedom. Real-life Casablanca! The unscripted and candid discussions between the now elderly partisans who were betrayed and sent to Siberia and the neighbors who sold them out to the Communists are palpable in their drama and tension. What isn't said speaks as loudly as the words actually expressed. A terrific movie.
