Trivia

In the first scene in the cinema, Stalin is watching The Spoilers (1942). In the second scene in the cinema, all that is seen is the final shot of a film - a title card with the words, "The End" superimposed on a map of Alaska. This would appear to be from "The Spoilers" as this film is set in Alaska. So, with either Stalin was watching same film again or the film-makers twice used clips from the one film to give the impression that he watched many American films. See more »

a case. who defines an entire period. a film about Soviet Union under Stalin . and a beautiful introduction to the atmosphere of regime. far to be great, it is one of films who reminds, in correct manner, a great tragedy. ideal for discover the rules, logic and cynicism of Soviet power, for defines a leader who could be hero in some from East Europe regions, for the tension of a fight, for the essence of fear as the most convincing rule, for the image of woman in the heart of dictatorship, for a remarkable portrait of Stalin and for its end who is the definition of an entire process. a film who only suggest the tragedy of Communism. in correct manner, only too cold but useful as point of research about crimes and about high cynicism of a war against yours citizens.
