Worth Watching - June 23: Russian War Film 'Admiral' Trailer
I stumbled across a great teaser trailer for a Russian film titled Admiral that I wanted to feature today. You might be surprised to discover that this an entirely Russian production, which amazes me because it looks impressive for something that isn't tainted by Hollywood. Admiral stars Konstantin Khabensky, of Night Watch / Day Watch, as Admiral Kolchak during the Russian Civil War. The film, to put it simply, is a story of a great love facing the greatest drama of the history of Russia. There's not much more I can say to prepare you for Admiral, except to warn you that the dialogue is in Russian without subtitles.
