Excerto... The film is set in 1918, St. Petersburg, Russia. The new government has announced a Red Terror, and now a merciless extermination of "counter-revolutionaries" is underway. Eugene Pavlovich Adamov, general of the royal army and professor at the Military Academy of Law, is arrested and placed in a kind of "room" which is arranged as a prisoner's cell. However, it does not only contain the king's soldiers, officials and aristocrats, but also ordinary criminals. Every day prisoners who are shaking from fear are being taken away for "trial" from the horrible room. And the verdict is almost always the same – execution by the firing squad.
Adamov has no illusions as he quietly waits for death, but suddenly a miracle happens: he is freed. Being an honest and principled man, Adamov in 1905 refused to be a prosecutor at the trial of the revolutionary sailors, and now the new government considered this sufficient grounds for release of the old tsarist general. However, Adamov has no place to go: his apartment with numerous rooms has been given to other people a long time ago, and the general has to go back to the place of his recent confinement where he finds a job as a launderer.
Some time later Adamov is offered a job as an investigator and he begins to serve the new government. However, as he investigates the murders of the military confiscation unit ("prodotryad") members, the general is faced with an attempt of lawlessness on the part of the "reds" and resolutely tries to prevent this. Alas, no one listens to Adamov, innocent people are shot without trial, and the general himself falls into the hands of the "whites". Adamov tries to explain to the officer of the detachment his reasons for him going over to the Bolshevik side, but he sees only a traitor in Adamov, and he orders to shoot his old professor ...

O realizador Alexey German é muito famoso neste fórum, pelo remake de 2013 do filme de ficção científica"Hard to be a God", onde o realizador faleceu durante as filmagens.
Eu sou dos poucos adeptos de sci-fi que ainda não viu esse filme, embora já tenha divulgado muito a co-produção entre a Europa Ocidental e o Bloco de Leste de 1989...

Quanto ao outro realizador Grigory Lazarevich Aronov, o homem foi director do estúdio soviético Odessa, e com isso não se brinca nem há "pão para malucos", o estúdio Odessa era um dos dois estúdios soviéticos ucranianos (o outro era o estúdio Dovchenko), e de entre outras produções criaram o famoso D' Artagnan soviético de 1978 (é uma super-produção infantil e musical mas muito jeitosa), embora eu também j+a tenha mostrado filmes mais sérios e adultos do estúdio ucraniano Odessa, que fazia contra-peso ao estúdio ucraniano Dovchencko, que era mais vocacionado para filmes históricos poéticos, numa atitude muito singela e diferente do restante cinema dos outros países do bloco sovético.
