Passionate reality story of past and present
Excellent production documenting love in the repressive Soviet era, which although is an historical piece also sadly reflects today’s Russian circumstances – many life takeaways here. Well filmed tense drama, filled with love, happiness and passion. Very enjoyable to watch and hope this film gets good distribution globally as its a quality well rounded movie.
A story unlike any other
This is a very un-typical addition to the gay themed film genre, a story that takes place in the USSR during the years between the Cold War and the war in Afghanistan, thus placing it early in the genre — the protagonists are two men, one (Sergey) a young naive private in the Soviet Army and the other (Roman), a slightly higher ranking pilot in the Air Force. The story line revolves around the two of them and their interaction with a young woman (Luisa). When the two men recognize their attraction to each other, a love affair begins and is almost squelched entirely by the Soviet Army, which has a law against any form of homosexual behavior, resulting in banishment and even imprisonment as a crime. The two men meet clandestinely, and, as to be expected, are given a warning by the Commanding Officer — however, the attraction is stronger than law. The results are both painful and rewarding to see.
Finally, a gay-themed love story that has a serious consequence beyond just being a one-night stand with its typical predictability. It has several twists and turns, and the ending is quite moving. As it is a true story, the result is even more bittersweet than if it was fictional, but there seems to be something of a feeling that such a story could not be summed up in a short synopsis — it is much richer and far more devastating in its consequences.
This film won the award for Best First Film at the SF LGBTQ film fest awards, and seems to be deserving of a much bigger stage than the minor LGBT festivals where it is being shown. It should be on a world class stage, and be a contender for the Palme d’Or, the Venice Golden Lion, or some other significant award. One can only hope that the world can accept a quality piece of work such as this and welcome it with open arms.
