December 7, the Ukrainian rolling out the new film directed by Akhtem Seytablaev.
In Kyiv cinema “Oscar” held a press screening of the film “Cyborg”, which was directed by Ukrainian film Director Ahtem Seytablaev, reports Rus.Media.
The plot of seven soldiers who come to defend the Donetsk airport named after Prokofiev in September 2014. Ukrainian troops for four months to protect this strategic facility in Spartan conditions, despite, to put it mildly, stupid orders of their superiors. Among the recruits was the son of rich parents, a musician with the appropriate call sign is “Major”. He is, despite expectations, will be remembered by the audience Patriotic stance, intelligence, and courage.
Guys leave enemy attacks, hold positions and with varying degrees of success discussing the history of Ukraine. The Director tried to show in the frame “real” war on the Mat, vodka, cigarettes, inherent humor and worldview of the military personnel. Some of the soldiers speak in Russian, some in Ukrainian. But this does not prevent them to bond for a higher purpose – defending the Motherland.
The characters of “Cyborgs” are very interesting in themselves: there are intellectuals, and stupid, and the believers, with or without experience. Perhaps if not for this airport, they would have never met and are unable to talk about them as citizens of our country really care about. For example, why the story of Ukraine has developed in such a way, who is to blame and what to do next.
In the frame you will see a lot of equipment, weapons, explosions, deaths. But it also sounds very good lyrical song “Hutsulka Ksenya”. In the collective male performance amid all this despair, looks very beautiful.
The film is complex. A lot of contexts, views and the most amazing word “truths”. But today the picture is very necessary for Ukraine and it’s good that she is. To assess the “Cyborg” for some scale makes no sense, because the value of the film for each will have its own.
