At the very beginning of World War II, the tiny town of Stavrovo is at the epicenter of great history. Its location, the proximity of the front line, the railway, the intersection of several roads led to the city a large garrison of Germans. But the underground operates in the city, consisting mainly of yesterday's schoolchildren. This is the story of the confrontation between two young people, two vital positions - Komsomol member Aleksey and the traitor Dmitriy.Written by
Shocked that after seven years, I'm the very first to write a review. It's a moving film and a WW2 story based on true event. The story revolves around a Russian, German collaborator who committed, horrendous atrocities against his own people. It's a film not only of murder and crime but of loyalty and human compassion. The usual Russian War picture, usually depicts any German as an almost cartoon baddie but here the enemy is used in a subtle way and the focus is (firmly on) one of their very own war criminals.
