The film tells the story of the defense of the Ukrainian seamen on the lake Donuzlav
Edition Today Lifestyle
In Ukrainian rolling out the military lady “Cherkassy. The last ship in the Crimea” – feature debut with Timur Yaschenko. The film is live, real, strong. Without pathos, the extra references to patriotism, exaggerating the meaning of the word “heroism”. So I don’t want to write the usual review of the movie or the review. Moreover, many expect from the film outright failure. And it was Vice versa. Real live pain and emotions the Director got from the audience as real, alive, simple pain and emotions.
“Cherkassy”: the plot of the film
The history of minesweeper with its glorious history is known to many. The whole Ukraine in the spring of 14th-watched the scene on the lake Donuzlav: the crew of “Cherkasy” kept the defense, but on 25 March, Russian troops seized the ship and our sailors left it.
In the film, the Director told the audience the history of the service on the ship and the history of its defense with the eyes of a common sailor. No heroes, no one uttered a 5-minute inspirational speeches about love to their country. All the most honest and painfully real.
Actor Roman Semisal the role of the captain of the ship “Cherkasy”
In the film two main characters – a bear and a lion. The first is not terribly want to go back to the ship, and the second after burying a loved one decide to go into the Navy. Two different destinies, two different characters, two sides of a single ship. As told “Today” the performers Dmitry Sova and Eugene Lam, a lion is the alter ego of Michael, to more reveal character, to show drama and emotion. These guys with the rest of the crew headed by captain Yuri Fedash (novel Chemical) refuse to side with the enemy and continue to hold the Fort on the lake Donuzlav.
A ship with a soul
Now we calmly talk about what was the Crimean scenario and what led to those events. Now, in 2020 we clearly know on which pages of our history located Slavyansk, Saur-Grave, Zelenopole, Ilovaysk, Debaltsevo… Now we know how beating “grads” how to dig trenches, what to take with you to the shelter, what to say at the checkpoints and how much to drink or dreamed of their streets and neighbors who are no longer alive…
Frame from the movie “Cherkasy”
Some losses will be overwritten in the memory of the previous one, the new heroes are to protect the country, replacing each other. But in 2014, we did not believe were not ready for such scenarios… the Film is forced to recall the beginning, the heroism, those these men’s actions, after which you realize why the home does not sell for a salary, four times more than the current one. The film showed why a sailor loyal to their oath, honest to friends and family, and to go ashore to the “brothers” – “Taka sobi honor.”
The viewer will not see loud oaths, bright flags, torn vests on his chest and hear the anthem. It’s pretty simple, truthfully. it’s true. Therefore, the “Cherkassy” managed to convey, to restore the unwillingness, confusion and pain of Ukrainians to such a course of events.
And the ship itself – the ship with a soul. This building and the fortress, and hell for the crew. The narrow corridors, the sounds of the engines and the sea, the harsh cold metal and soft cold water, the same raw nerves that play the cheekbones and muscles and simple values, and sailors. And even though the vehicle temporarily taken from us, the crew knows – what our shore.
And let in the picture there are rough spots in the script for the film “Cherkasy” is our pain and memory, with a touch of salt. Felts from sea water, whether from tears…
Earlier, we did a review of the film “My thoughts are quiet.”
