I’d like to buy an “A”.
press “CC” on control bar on the bottom of the video for English subtitles!)
I love finding movies like this on Youtube. I watched one last weekend about El Alamein from the Italian perspective.
I saw a Korean one once, based on a true story, about a ROK ‘Dirty Dozen’ type squad that was trained to go north and kill Kim Il Sung, but their mission got scrubbed. They rebelled and almost made it to the ROK equivalent of the White House before getting surrounded and annihilated.
The Russians have made some epic war movies, no sappy love interest crap like “Pearl Harbor.”
Get ready to storm the fortress, lads!
That movie sucked.
The only good war movie that's come out in the past few years was "Black Hawk Down," IMO.
The bust is looking down, as though contemplating something about chest-high ...
Perhaps he is looking at a woman's bust, or perhaps his own ...
I’ve seen ‘Come and See’. That was nightmarish.
As much as realistic. that was real ear- not like “band of brothers” thing. Germans were real bastards.
I did a quick review of this one. Not knowing Russian and not at all interested in trying to read subtitles too small for this 9 inch screen (on a netbook subbing for my gigantic IMAC whichis out for repairs)~ I had to limit my understanding to history (which can be read elsewhere) and my knowledge of the Great Russian ethnic group.
They have made an art of perseverence. This is one story of that trait. Followed closely a viewer should be able to come to grips with what that means. Almost like reading all of the serious Russian language literature for the last 100 years ~ you get it all here in one little piece of a gigantic war.
Not that these guys had much choice, but you see philosophical and spiritual ancestors of the young men you saw flying helicopter loads of concrete over the open reactor core of Chernobyl.
Of course the story has been romanticized and turned into a legend. I am certain the real situation was far worse, more hopeless, and certainly extended way beyond normal standards of brutality ~ but that's always hard to portray.
Hooters last stand?
“What’s the difference between a fort and a fortress?”
The latter has breastworks.
Did a quick preview. Liked it. I’ll watch it sometime this weekend.
Notes in cyrillic
When I look at that I hear Wagner.
hit CC and it hs English subs
