Drama (1944) 95 minutes ~ Black & White

Original Title: Kutuzov

Originally titled Kutuzov, this Russian historical epic re-creates in meticulous detail the Russo-Napoleonic war of the early 19th century. As Napoleon Bonaparte (Semen Mezhinsky) lays siege against Russia, dashing Prince Kutuzov (Alexei Dikiy) mounts a courageous counteroffensive. In a parallel development, Prince Bagration (S. Zakariadze) leads a secondary military unit near Moscow, becoming a martyr to the cause in the process. The film was clearly designed as a plea for the opening of an Allied second front against Hitler in the Soviet Union of 1944 -- and seldom has propaganda been presented in so vivid and entertaining a fashion. Reportedly, director Vladimir Petrov, whose other works include the multi-part Peter the First and Battle of Stalingrad, based his camera compositions in 1812 on contemporary paintings and engravings of the actual conflict
