More than expected!!!
3 May 2017 | by (Tbilisi, Georgia) – See all my reviews

I have red, haired and watched quite a lot about this historical event. Opinions always differ.. I will say briefly, that this film was more than I expected. It was way far from subjectivity and excessive romanticism what would make unambiguous heroes out of the main characters. Great scenario! Great actors! bravo!!! Great film!
