It should to be blockbuster

Last two weeks here in Kaunas are filmed the main scenes for the new Lithuanian film "Owls mountain".

Thats all to try recreate the authentic image of the era: the film is devoted to the heroic and tragic period of our history or war after the war.  The blockbuster type film is about the fights of Lithuanian partisans. Action of the film is in the years 1947-1951. Besides Lihuanian actors several Ukrainian actors are engaged in the filming too:

It should be interesting to see. In fact best known film about the perod is the ideologically motivated soviet period "No one wanted to die" (1966) or very cheap "Completely alone" (2001).
