Don't miss the fun adventure behind the propaganda!
If you like adventure, risk, some violence, sort-of slapstick humor, and you don't mind the propaganda(see the next paragraph), then this would be a good movie for you. The quality of the film is also not bad. There are some beautiful places, but mostly it's just the thrill of not knowing(or knowing)what comes next.
This movie was made in 1967, so of course it has to be full of soviet propaganda to be "allowed". You see the bad "whites", and the good "reds" (the Russians were divided into supporters of the tsar, whites, the people who hated the tsar, reds, and those stuck in the middle), but if you ignore this, the movie is actually great. If you just imagine that the "whites" are some random bad army, and that everyone else is good, then you can sit back and enjoy the movie. You also just naturally forget most of the political part and start just wishing luck to the boys, and girl, who play the main parts.
