Beautifully framed and shot, this visceral, anti-war silent movie is brought to life by Guy Bartell’s resonant score. The Great War has brought devastation, heartache and hardship to the Ukrainian people.
Timosh, a demobbed soldier, returns to his hometown Kiev amidst celebrations of Ukrainian freedom, only to challenge the local authorities by calling for the soviet system to be adopted. From its devastating opening sequence onwards you are acutely aware of the emotional impact of a completely different style of filmmaking. Anyone who saw the wonderful Turksib at WOW a couple of years ago will not want to miss this.
