The unhurried life of a remote worker town in the Russian Empire is spun off its axis when the First World War breaks out. Men are drafted to fight, and soon, German prisoners of war are brought in. While considered arch-foes by many locals, others are able to see the enemy soldiers as fellow victims of war. Boris Barnet, a skillful director who was sometimes overshadowed by his more successful colleagues, builds a strong anti-military message to create one of the most humane accounts of the Russian Revolution. DIR/SCR Boris Barnet; SCR Konstantin Finn, from his short story. USSR, 1933, b&w, 98 min. In Russian and German with English subtitles. NOT RATED
