Storyline

USSR, Late November, 1941. Based on the account by reporter Vasiliy Koroteev that appeared in the Red Army's newspaper, Krasnaya Zvezda, shortly after the battle, this is the story of Panifilov's Twenty-Eight, a group of twenty-eight soldiers of the Red Army's 316th Rifle Division, under the command of General Ivan Panfilov, that stopped the advance on Moscow of a column of fifty-four Nazi tanks of the 11th Panzer Division for several days. Though armed only with standard issue Mosin-Nagant infantry rifles and DP and PM-M1910 machine guns, all useless against tanks, and with wholly inadequate RPG-40 anti-tank grenades and PTRD-41 anti-tank rifles, they fought tirelessly and defiantly, with uncommon bravery and unwavering dedication, to protect Moscow and their Motherland.

Best Russian modern film about WW2
30 November 2016 | by nasstyangelSee all my reviews

This film is about ordinary heroes and simple feat. It ordinary people protect what they hold dear, in the main it the memory of ancestors, whose feat gave us life.

Many talk about the doubts about the feat, talk about the propaganda that that there is no talking teapots and assistants of the protagonist, and no hysterical howls of frightened people here warriors, soldiers came to protect your home. People have taken the path of the world's evil and safely carry out their work in the face of true death.

In conclusion to quote one of the characters: Now all the heroes, because the time is.
