Petsamo Front Movie

Russian WWII buffs have made this short film by mixing news reels with reenactors on real WWII sites in the Arctic.

I like the way the German Arctic news reel transforms into today's landscape, and how the film team have made use of the Titovka bunkers. The Soviets portrayed are NKVD border guards, who fought well.

The name of the film in English is "Seventh Day of the War". It is an amazing Russian amateur "Saving Private Ryan", filmed on the real WWII battlefields in the Russian Arctic.
