A Russian version of « Aux armes, citoyens! »
26 July 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

The atmosphere is profoundly dark with a medieval exploitation of Russian workers in an outmoded factory in the suburbs of a small industrial town. Unless you are born with a silver spoon in your mouth and/or suffer from aggravated autism, you should be immediately in empathy with this bunch of no-hopers who rebel mainly because of a lack of choice against the oligarch who informs them, coldly and without any qualm, the impending closure of the factory. The continuation is a modern and military adaptation of Germinal (Émile Zola, 1885).

Moreover, as the society is profoundly changing, this story is probably a harbinger of manifold similarities in the real life, as the ravages of the French « gilets jaunes » which have been world-widely broadcasted.
