WINGS OVER BERLIN
A WW2 HEROIC STORY
Since Hollywood is sleeping currently, your trusted spy is, as usual, taking you on a trip around the world to see new productions from all corners of the globe,
so after informing you about the new projects from Denmark, Hungary and Australia earlier this week, we are today moving to the Eastern Europe with two new historical movies. First one is coming from Russia celebrating their brave, heroic past. WINGS OVER BERLIN (Крылья над Берлином) already flew through their cinemas earlier this April coming from their celebrated director Konstantin Buslov whom we mentioned last year here as the helmer of another World War II movie Kalashnikov about the inventor of their famous riffle which, invented to spread death among the enemy, actually saved many lives.
|Wings over Berlin aired this April in Russia|
WINGS OVER BERLIN
starring Evgeniy Antropov, Aleksandr Metyolkin and Sergei Puskepalis, is a touching war romance and adventure bringing the story of the feat of the pilots of the 1st mine torpedo aviation regiment of the Baltic Fleet Air Force, headed by Colonel Preobrazhensky (Maksim Bityukov). They had the most difficult combat mission - to inflict the first bombing strikes on Berlin, the capital of Nazi Germany.
