The Soviet Union’s demise was one of the most controversial and significant events in history.
But now, in the year 2017, the legacy of the cold war is being laid bare in this stunning film by legendary director Alexei Grossman and writer/director Richard Linklater.
The Cold War is finally coming to an end, and the first of two sequels is a retelling of the events of the original film, as well as an homage to some of the other seminal films of the Cold War.
It is the story of a small group of individuals who are determined to reclaim the world’s history for their children.
The film follows the story from the time of the founding of the Soviet Union, when the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and his inner circle were able to gather the vast amounts of documents needed to create a functioning state.
It also examines the role of the American government in ensuring that the documents were kept secret and the United States remained firmly entrenched in the Cold Wars.
It’s a gripping film that has a lot of promise and many fans will be delighted to see this one get made.
But, with all of the controversy that has surrounded the original Cold War movie, there are some things that the film will have to contend with.
It’s a historical drama, so it has to address the issues raised by the film, such as the role that the US government played in ensuring the documents could never be made public.
It will also have to address some controversial scenes, which have been criticised as ‘Nazi’ in the past.
The story is told in the first part of the film with the events taking place between 1945 and 1949, and it’s also told through the eyes of a number of characters, such a young girl (Svetlana Kuznetsova) and a young man (Vladimir Sobchak), who are part of a team of five who are searching for documents.
While the film is well-written and has a strong plot, there is one major problem with it.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t tell the whole story.
Some of the key scenes are taken from the books and films of Stalin and are never shown in the film.
These include scenes from the trials and deportations of the Gulag Archipelago in the 1930s and the deportation of Jews in Auschwitz in the 1940s.
For example, there’s a scene in the movie in which the group finds documents which show the location of a concentration camp, but the only place where it appears is the place where the documents are kept, which is in a storage room in the underground building of the Belsen camp.
Similarly, some of Stalin’s most famous speeches, such the one in which he tells the people of the USSR that they have to sacrifice their children, are never heard in the documentary.
This is especially true for the famous speech in which Stalin tells his people to ‘not even think of killing anyone’ in order to protect their children and the world from Hitler.
The director, Grossman, is a master of historical fiction, so there’s no doubt that this film will not only tell the full story of the Great Terror, but also the story behind it.
And this is no small task.
The entire saga is only told through oral history, so the film has to be able to portray Stalin and the Soviet government as being human and flawed.
I feel that the makers of the new film have done a good job.
I can’t wait to see what else they have in store.
