memories of a sailor
A Soviet propaganda film. Or, more simple, a film by Sergey Yutkevich from his six films about Lenin. A film about electrification of Soviet Union, about confessions of a body guard of the Great Leader , about the meet between Ulianov and HG Welles and about the fight for transformation of country. In many senses, nothing original. Nice cinematography, the too familiar performance style, the same naive and fake message, the year - 1947- dominating the way to see it. The basic gift for an Eastern European - a sort of nostalgia. Not about the communism but about a sort of state of things in youth of the viewer or about a silly naivety of propaganda. Not memorable film, but a slice of history. And the precious gift can be see, again, Nikolay Kolesnikov in the role of Lenin or Mikhail Gelovani as Stalin. Sure, I admitt, I am very subjective. But it is a film who I see as a sort of fairy tale, feeling the respiration of the year when it was made.
