The Civil War in Russia as seen from both sides
16 March 2005 | by zolotong (Moscow, Paris and elsewhere) – See all my reviews

Maybe it's the best Soviet movie that ever appeared. The date is 1920, when the White armies were finally defeated and driven out by Bolsheviks. The ultimate battle took place in Crimea, a small peninsula in the South Russia. We can see the battle from different points of view. Four central actors are astonishing. Yankovski, as a intellectual who fights for the Revolution but cannot blindly believe in its ideology; Bykov, playing a real Red commissary, naive as a child, cruel and enthusiastic; Vysotski, a White officer, disillusioned and sardonic; Savvina, a White nurse, patriot of Russia and of 'White cause'. Many episodes will stay in your memory forever, as, for example, the White officers who enter the sea, preferring death to giving up. The movie is enlightened by a wonderful sense of humor - sometimes simple and robust, when coming from Red soldiers, sometimes elegant and melancholic with the noble officers.
