DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON
A story based on real events that laid the foundation for the great Road of Life - the ice road winter transport route across the frozen Lake Ladoga, which provided the only access to the city of Leningrad besieged by German and Finnish Nazis. The siege lasted over three long years during which over one million citizens of Leningrad died from starvation, cold and bombardments! Each winter, the Lake Ladoga ice route was reconstructed by hand, and built according to precise arithmetic calculations depending on traffic volume. In addition to transporting thousands of tons of munitions and food supplies each year, the Road of Life also served as the primary evacuation route for the millions of Russians trapped within the starving hero city!

  2. "Remi" trailer is powerful with beautiful people and landscape,adorable boy and...the french language.
    The movie's worth waiting for its arrival in the cinemas during December.

    Oh, how I like russian names! Kostya, Nastya.. Recently I've discovered a lady blogger who names her cats with russian names: Pushkin, Rimsky, Rouska. There's something melodious and sweet about these names.

    1. Remi really does have amazing art production!
      I had tons of cats myself with Russian names :) Actually I named the spiders on the ceiling in my office room Andrey, Sergey and Olga. I had cats before called Lybov, Orlov, Prince Igor etc I do even like to speak with them in Russian just for the fun of it :)

    When you speak the language, it comes naturally, but the australian lady, kind of surprised me with the names of her cats.(She won't,however, name any cat of her Putin).

    1. Putya or Putyenka would've been such a lovely name for a cat or koshka as Russians say :)

  4. Maybe it's just me, but why does it seem like many Russian films are terrifying? Doom and gloom in a lot of them.

    1. because our Slavic destiny has always been to suffer gloom and doom in the hands of the West, our films show our heroic stubbornness and martyrdom in the face of constant evils we have been exposed to always throughout our history. That is also why our folk songs and literature and art always carry that deeply ingrained sadness and pain. I mean did you notice the numbers in the post, for example? NY lost how many on September 11th? Two thousand? Leningrad lost more than a million by itself, a single city, not a whole country! How can there be merry frolicking and cheerfulness in movies and art when constantly faced with such deadly capita?

    2. I get it. Many lives lost over the years and 2,000 or 1 million, they are all tragic. I just feel like "yikes" when a new Russian movie pops up. Not just with the historical ones, but the sci-fi and wintery setting ones too. Put in a request to throw something light-hearted once in a while, would ya? I'm sure they could make some brilliant comedies. Many of the Russians I have met over the years have a wicked sense of humor.

    3. well, you know I mostly cover history and their history was always, sadly, tragic, but also heroic. Out of their more merrier movies that are coming up, the only one that pops into my mind is THE GOALKEEPER OF GALAXY, but that one is probably more for Jason. I will probably post a trailer when it arrives, as it looks very colourful, kinda like fun in space.

    4. I'll be on the lookout for that trailer. Did you see the Russians that crafted a school bus out of like cardboard or something and wore it so they could walk across the vehicle only bridge? It was hilarious! I'm telling you, they are some comedians there.

    5. Slavic people do like to joke around and also hang out a lot in pubs and clubs. The only way to drown the sadness is in the glass of booze.
