A film about the persecutions and arrest of the FR and Chassidim in the USSR
39 minutes. B&W, Russian, no subtitles (yet)
Lots of historical footage, including some of the October revolution.
I still contend that Russian is a vile-sounding language, suitable for the millions of peasants who spoke and speak it. The Royal family themselves spoke French! That should count for something. I would hope one of our many Russian-speaking readers would do us all a favor and translate some of the film for us.
I'd also like to hear what you people think about the level of directing that happens here. Is it overdone?
