“The picture shows not just the chronicles of the last wars that have befallen Russia, but, summarizing the terrible experience of these wars, the crime of the authorities and society behind these wars and watching indifferently — the powerlessness, grief and death of their fellow citizens is proved. A society that does not want to think about the terrible consequences of war.
Sadly, evil is a natural state of harmony. To defeat his impossible to remember him and to confront, as far as possible, it is necessary. And although our film is about Russia, it is addressed to the whole world, because war is just the extreme degree of social evil that is everywhere. ”
