Arsenal_1928_filmArsenal (Dir. Oleksandr Dovzhenko, 1928) Beautifully framed and shot, this is a visceral anti-war movie. The Great War (World War I) has brought devastation, heartache and hardship to the Ukrainian people. Timosh, a recently demobbed soldier, returns to his hometown Kiev amidst the celebrations of Ukrainian freedom. But Timosh challenges the local authorities by calling for the Soviet system to be adopted. From its devastating opening sequence onwards you are acutely aware of the emotional impact of a completely different style of filmmaking.
