| The Drummer's Fate...
Based on a 1939 published story from writer Arkady Gaidar "The Drummer's Fate" is a wonderfully entertaining adventure drama film. The author lived through turbulent times and accomplished much in his fascinating but tragically short life. His tales are filled with camaraderie, the romanticism of the revolutionary struggle, of altruistic pioneers. Gaidar's works originate from his front line life experience, his writings became a huge influence on the rise of volunteer children's/youth organisations across the Soviet Union. The Drummers Fate surprises with a blend of adult noirish drama and as an exciting boys own adventure. 12 year old Sergei Yasinsky gives a first class natural and engaging performance in this his only screen credit. Left to his own devices following a serious of misfortunes that have torn his family apart Sergei is accosted by thieves and spies. shady characters that try and take advantage of the resourceful youth, the son of an engineer who had been working on a secret project. For those with an interest a Highly Recommended Soviet Classic Film
