«T-34» – high-octane tribute to the Soviet tank that played a key role on the Eastern Front of the GreatPatriotic War (World War II).
Spanning the years 1941-45, the film tells the story of Red Army Lieutenant Nikolai Ivushkin’s unlikelyattempt to escape a German prisoner-of-war camp in a T-34 tank that he and three other men aretasked with repairing by their Nazi overseers. The fugitives are cornered in a German village near theCzechoslovak border, where an epic tank battle culminates the movie.
The slow-motion projectiles and video-game graphics give the movie a modern feel, and its simplestoryline is thin on nuance. According to director Aleksei Sidorov, the aim of the film was to “tell thestory of war in a way that appeals to the youth but doesn’t prove controversial among those who stillkeep the Great Patriotic War (World War II) in their memory,” the Culture Ministry quoted him as sayingin a press release.
