Ukraine, 1918. As a Bolshevik army of about 4.000 men, commanded by General Muravyov, advances towards Kyiv, with the aim of capturing the city, a small Ukrainian unit of 400 soldiers -about 300 of which are students- is resisting near the railroad station of Kruty. The clash between the opposite and unequal forces rages, with terrible fury. Young people, like Spartan soldiers, sacrifice themselves in a struggle against aggressors.
The film is alive, true, not counting some aesthetic moments. It feels that the battles were filmed by the participants of the real battles, the actors were as participants in the ATO (Anti-Terrorist Operation). There's even a steam locomotive to ride using the water from well to well.
It was interesting from start to finish.
Disadvantages if there is only a question to post production.
