Bitter Harvest 2017 BRRip XviD AC3-EVO
Plot: Set between the two World Wars and based on true historical events, BITTER HARVEST conveys the untold story of the Holodomor, the genocidal famine engineered by the tyrant Joseph Stalin. The film displays a powerful tale of love, honour, rebellion and survival at a time when Ukraine was forced to adjust to the horrifying territorial ambitions of the burgeoning Soviet Union. With an exceptional cast of established and rising stars, the film epically recreates one of the most dramatic and dangerous episodes in the history of 20th Century Europe.
Deeply moving and human.
Bitter Harvest succeeds in giving the incomprehensible tragedy of the Holodomor a human face. Through the suffering of one village, a family, a pair of young lovers, and a young dreamer/artist, the viewer experiences this story of love and survival on a more personal level. The depiction of the brutality promoted by Stalin’s murderous regime and Russian chauvinism is eye-opening. Some unknowing critics argue that it is unrealistic in it’s depiction of idyllic pastoral settings and colorful villages with singing and dancing peasants (which by the way I have heard was very much the reality in Ukrainian villages). It makes for an effective contrast to the horror that ensues. This is a deeply moving movie. The most moving moment for me – when Yuri’s sadistic prison guard looks into his cell and asks him what he’s drawn on the wall. Yuri, exhausted and barely audible, answers – “My wife”.
