Trivia

In the epic "Liberation", the former Lieutenant General Vlasov first appeared on the screen. It was a great success for Yuriy Ozerov that he was allowed this only scene with Vlasov (in the Sachsenhausen camp he talks with Stalin's son Yakov Dzhugashvili, whose name and tragedy were not advertised at that time either). Vlasov's show was allowed on the condition that his name would not be mentioned anywhere: not only in the film, but also on the set. This character received the code name "General". See more »

The first part from the quintology about the great patriotic war made by director Yuriy Ozerov is like almost all sovietic and russians war movies a masterpiece.
