TV series Black Sheep watch online freeThe plot takes us to the times of the Great Patriotic War. The main characters are prisoners who managed to escape from prison and hide in a small village where they are unlikely to be wanted. True, soon the fugitives have to face another problem: a German detachment of saboteurs carrying out a secret operation turns out to be near the village. Now the criminals find themselves in a situation where it is necessary to defend the Motherland. The war is terrible, the losses cannot be counted. However, such a disaster can even make villains into real heroes, ready to give their lives for the freedom of others.
There is a simple recipe for the success of TV series about the war: it launches an atmosphere of patriotism, a pinch of heroism and you heat up the atmosphere a little and that's all - the project is ready, you can rest on your laurels, because the audience will definitely like it. However, more and more often people who clearly understand something in history began to express their opinions in the comments and notice that some discrepancies with the real state of affairs still exist, that some actors play too modern, that many people then do not behave so well. conducted, as they are now on the screen, and sometimes the technique in the series appears far from the one that took place during that war. In general, there are more and more people who notice some of the authors' mistakes. Why invent, on top of everything else, an original and deep plot, if you can use already fairly common and standard templates. To make a good series about the war, you need to either remember some heroic defense that went down in history, or show the audience some kind of top-secret espionage operation that influenced the course of events. In general, this is what they use. This show is no exception. A lot of inaccuracies, a lot of mistakes, a lot of oddities. It is also worth highlighting very cheap decorations. The budget obviously went not to convey the atmosphere and show the real state of affairs at the time. Alas, these are the weakest aspects of the series. However, there are also some pretty good moves, like some storylines and acting. The performers did not fail. It should also be noted that this project has not yet become a series, which was unequivocally condemned. That is, there are those who like him, as well as those to whom he did not go at all. You can only watch it to determine which side you are on.
The military theme is always very difficult, unbearably tense throughout the film. It's a pity that fewer and fewer witnesses of that terrible time remain alive who can tell the history of wartime without embellishment. It's also scary that as time passes, century after century, everything can change drastically. It must be terrible and painful for us that we can witness the changes in history, its distortions, distortions, because this has already begun. After watching the movie "Black Sheep", I personally had some painful sediment on my soul. the line of the film, after all, by its name you can see, it's not about the beautiful. So the time shown in the film is the most tragic and difficult to eat. Here we will start from the very beginning of 1941, when the war began to rapidly gain momentum and unfortunately in our favor. We have to shift the front, retreat, flee, destroying everything behind us so that the enemy does not get it. In the war there was all this we can imagine, there is grief, death b, love and life went side by side like brothers. Therefore, one could see both wartime heroes and those who were not. The whole film is based on the story of "black sheep", and who are they? These are ordinary people , like all of us, but seeing life in a different way. In short, the film is about convicts, those who rightfully bear this stigma and without the right. As now, and at that time it happened to go to prison for completely innocent people. The beginning of the film will reveal to us the tragedy of 1941, when a camp with criminals is under the command of Major Rychagin. But he has to retreat and Rychagin is ordered to blow up a nearby ammunition depot so that it does not fall to the approaching enemy. he also instructs to bury the weapon and mark this place on the map. He understands how to deal with the convicts, and gives the task to the soldiers after completing the case to shoot them as unnecessary witnesses to their cache. to look such horror and understand that it is quite real. So it was, who needed such people, but not who. Passions continue when a column of soldiers with convicts falls under an air strike from the Germans, some of the soldiers die, the rest are finished off by convicts. living convicts flee to a village about which one of them knows, because his aunt lived there. Before fleeing, the convicts take off their uniforms from the dead to impersonate soldiers of the Soviet army. They succeed. In the village there are only women, children and the weak old men, all the rest went to fight. Women yearning for men accept with open arms the defenders of the Motherland, not suspecting who they really are. It soon becomes known that a group of Germans, saboteurs, is moving into the village to carry out sweeps in the ranks of our people. What should the prisoners do to them it is understandable, of course, to run on leaving women, children and old people to their mercy. But people are everywhere, just like among these "black sheep". After all, some of them ended up in jail only because of their reluctance to carry out stupid orders of senior officials, and this was punished very cruelly from execution to expulsion to rot in prisons. After reflection, the convicts realized that they did not want to be "black sheep" all their lives, outcasts of fate. Even the most notorious thief in law named Batya decides to face death, meet the German evil and protect women, children, the elderly. It is interesting to see how these terrible people of yesterday, who value nothing, become completely different in the face of horror It is nice to see that even in the worst there is a handful of good things that will certainly overcome the rot that has been growing for years. While the convicts lived on the farm, they had a chance to understand why they should stay here. Musa and the Executioner found their destiny right here, their they also fell in love. It becomes clear to them for whom to live, fight and change for the better. This is how vitally all this is shown, so many feelings in four episodes of the film,It's nice that they can still shoot something worthwhile in our time. Even if there are no super-super special effects, super heroes to which they are accustomed in modern cinema, everything is different. Here completely different fates of people, yesterday's convicts, thieves, murderers are revealed to us. And today they become real heroes ready to give their lives for the Motherland, which betrayed many of them, acted not humanly. The meeting at the very end of Rychagin and Picasso is very impressive, because they are on opposite sides of the barricade. Once Rychagin did not care what Picasso's case is not as easy as it seemed to him. After all, he is just a man with a capital letter, ready to stand to death for his country from the very beginning, only the country did not need it. In the terrible reign of Stalin, many people were not at all useful, so many heroes turned out to be not at all where they should have. A sea of people, heroes of the country ended up in prisons or, even worse, shot without trial, and before death tortured in the casemates of a great country. Very much at the end of the film Rychagin's consciousness turns to fugitive convicts, he ceases to see them as "black sheep." , children and old people who were hiding behind their backs. After all, these are relatives, close people in spirit, they are their family, although not blood, but still awakened the souls of "animals" to the truth, great life. The film is simply a miracle, you cannot say otherwise, It is possible and necessary to look unambiguously in order to remember not everything as it seems to us. It is sometimes worthwhile to strain your brains and think about it! How often do we meet by clothes, but we see them off in mind! And here everything is the same, we turn our nose away from people who seem to us to be garbage, rot, decay, but in fact there is a great soul hidden there, full of unspent love for people. We all should more often look at the souls of people, remember the great creation of man, and not be sprayed on the outer, most often deceptive appearance.
When I started reading reviews for this film, I immediately realized that many people want to understand the film immediately and easily. Not everyone wants to think about what is happening on the screen, and yet many do not have enough objective knowledge to realize what generally happened during the Second World War. Not every book is easy to read, sometimes you have to figure out what you are reading, not every photo can be understood only by who is depicted on it. How can you be sure that a film about the war, or rather one of its episodes, can be conveyed to the viewer so that he, having minimal knowledge at that time, could understand everything? This is a very difficult task. I think the problem with this film is that the authors wanted to show the essence of a person by the example of criminals, and by the example of a leadership that looks cruel, but is considered worthy people in society, to show that it acts not even as a person, but as a system ... a lot of fine lines. But since the story of the prisoners who decided to help save the village was taken as the basis. It turns out that the emphasis is placed on the choice of prisoners who had to decide on whose side they are and who are they after all? If you look at everything that happens just as a story in the description, then it will turn out to be generally boring. The prisoners fled, not wanting to die and, saving themselves from death, decided to hide and then defend their bodies from the Germans and their own. If you look at everything like that, then it's not interesting and wrong. The war is not just a shootout of people. So here too, it is very important to understand the psychological motives of people, for which of them what do such concepts as "personal freedom" mean, what is "one's own territory", which means "Motherland". After all, criminals lived completely differently, and what they did did not bother them at all, this is their criminal world. They lived according to their own concepts, but the war also has its own concepts."Choose only one side", "If you are not a fascist, then he is you", "If you get cold feet, you will betray your homeland!" Of course, many criminals didn't even care when the war was going on somewhere, the main thing was that it did not concern them. Perhaps only one political criminal, an artist, hesitated when he and all the others were offered to blow up the ammunition depot so that the Germans would not get it. This would be a great opportunity to serve the Motherland. Can criminals be considered heroes? Have you ever invented such a word that would reflect the behavior of people who, being outcasts of society, unnecessary garbage to anyone, and doing something good? Are they generally worthy of a nice word or approval? This is a very good question. And this film has a lot of good questions in general. Here's another example from my grandmother's life. During the war, her sister was killed by his own Soviet soldier, when they walked through the forest ... Of course, he did not see for sure who it was ... Well, how does he relate to such a soldier? He was sure that she was German ... It's good that my grandmother managed to escape ... How can you just relate to this? The man just died ... In general, the war is ugly and dirty. And the fact that sometimes the authors of our time make it spectacular ... so it's even hard for me to judge how correct this is. No one will ever convey through video the cold frozen soil, aching pain, hunger, inner fears and thoughts, the sound of a German plane, fatigue, subordination and the ability to gather at the right moment ... All this is so unusual for the ordinary world. How to explain to a deaf person what sound is, and how to explain to a civilian what war is? Therefore, what about those who, despite their fear, and even in many respects in the name of saving their own lives, saved others, is it so terrible? What would you do? Could you be heroes, perfect in everything? Yes, today even places for the elderly and pregnant women are not inferior ... isn't that a crime? If you idealize society, then every citizen may not be worthy of the ideal and be called a good word. In my opinion, a good deed is worthy of respect. Many gave their lives for their homeland, but this does not mean that those criminals do not mean anything to society. Of course, a large number of people acted bravely and shed blood. But this does not mean that the price of each person should be reduced to something ordinary. Every drop of blood spilled means a lot. Life in general consists of various possibilities, tactics, strategies. When the fugitives had the opportunity to save the village, they did it. The film is interesting. Those who believe that they have made heroes out of prisoners, let them think so. In general, categoricalness often has its advantages, because you cannot be a little enemy, or a little murderer, a little patriotic. So who are they, heroes or not heroes, in my opinion? Here again it is worth returning to reading ... to reading the epigraph before the series. They are neither. They are black sheep.
A good domestic series about the Great Patriotic War, which was released in the tenth year. Developed by Ukrainian authors who told a story about prisoners who ended up in the war after being unsuccessfully escorted. Sergey Chekalov's project turned out to be quite interesting and, of course, full of meaning. The theme of love for the motherland and courage is raised here in the first place. Although, here even the speech is mostly not about patriotism in general, but rather about the fact that it is important to understand and realize not only your position in the flaring conflict, but also the position of other people, their problems, their grief and desire to live in a normal world ... The plot tells about a group of prisoners who were overtaken by German artillery shells while escorting. Some of the prisoners were killed and some were able to escape. In the village, the characters are presented as Red Army men, they find themselves in warmth and care, but they still do not know that they have to fight and fight against the best elite German military detachment.The plot is quite interesting, and the situation presented by the authors is not so unrealistic. The situation could really be in history, but here, most likely, in this review we need to consider not only the plot, because everything is in perfect order with it, but most likely the characters and actors. Alas, the heroes are not all clear and unambiguous. Not everything is properly spelled out, especially in terms of motivation. I would like to note that the authors of the script made a lot of characters, but almost none of them stand out for their particularly vivid humanity and depth of their views, thoughts, and already following logic is completely discouraged here. The cast is not so bad, although it doesn't really save you from not the best elaboration of the characters. I would like to note that the character of Kirill Rubtsov is very interesting. He is, in fact, the central character, who, it seems to me, even though he looks like a villain, but still seems to go through a path that makes him change. Not to say that we pass this path in one breath, but it looks good. Viktor Soloviev plays Batu. The actor is not bad, but the character is very ambiguous. I will also single out, perhaps, the actress Anna Kuzina, who seems to have played well enough for Olesya Zhurakovskaya. In general, I think that this series can still brighten one evening. The project is not one to watch for the sake of mood or relaxation. In places it is heavy and very touching, although sometimes it seems that even in these elements the authors did not put the squeeze on. The love line is well worked out, but outwardly everything looks just amazing. Costumes, decorations, special effects - all this is really done very cool. Well, I think that for the series about the Second World War will go. Not a bad work that can and should be watched by all fans of both the genre and TV series in general!
Very curious, what exactly did the creators of this project want to show in this series? Looking at everything that happens on the screen, there is a feeling that domestic directors wanted to make a picture like a Western thrilling action movie, only it is quite difficult for them to reach this level. So it is also very difficult to believe in the realism of everything that happens on the screen, although Russian cinema has always attracted me precisely for this. Here, it was completely impossible to believe in everything that was happening on the screen, some incredible story was unfolding before our eyes. It does not even fit in my head how ordinary prisoners could quite themselves cope with a well-trained and armed German sabotage group. Is it possible, really hard to believe in such actions. I don't even understand what effect the creators of this series were trying to achieve. Some actions of the Red Army soldiers defy any reasonable explanation, so what is happening on the screen looks really very funny and amusing. How could they even set up camp to spend the night in the field and not even set up a sentinel? Stupidity! The guards who escort the prisoners sit next to them along with weapons and bayonets attached. Is it like they are suicides? And I will never believe that Stalin was not informed about the impending war and Germany's attack on the Soviet Union! Such a person would simply be shot on the spot, so the creators clearly have something clever. Yes, perhaps the leader did not believe in such intentions of this country, but the fact that he was not told a complete lie about it. The directors decided to rely on their knowledge of history and not resort to the help of specialists. A lot in this picture looks very unnatural and very pretentious. The battles of the German army are presented so badly and incorrectly that you don't even want to look at something like that. Each soldier on his own and does not completely understand what he needs to do. In this army, nothing of the kind could have been, and the command would not have allowed anything of the kind.I also think it very absurd that the heroes could not find the village, which must have been marked on the map. If you do not know where it is, then ask the residents of nearby villages, they know exactly in which direction to move. I also absolutely cannot understand the prisoners. They are offered to prove their love and devotion to their homeland, they are given a chance to atone with blood for all the crimes that they have committed, especially since the Germans are already very close. And these people refuse the opportunity given to them. It is also very not logical that reputable convicts want to work for everyone, who, due to their status, should not do this. It is clear that the creators again decided to rely only on their knowledge, so nothing sensible came of it. So in general, the picture turned out to be completely implausible and the military actions here were also presented completely not logical and implausible. These are the first months of the war and they were extremely harsh and cruel for our people. Here they could not show anything of the kind. Therefore, it is better to watch the film "Dnieper Frontier", where the same time is described in a more realistic, believable and exciting way, and even time is not worth wasting on this series. If you still want to watch this series, then do not expect something vital and real from it. This is just a picture that presents a completely fantastic story about prisoners, which has nothing to do with real life. I think that hardly any of you will want to revise this project. So the choice is yours, but I still would not recommend this picture for viewing!
I have never watched reviews before watching a movie. I only watched the trailers, if any, and read the descriptions for them. It so happened that after reading many reviews, sometimes you don't even want to watch a movie. After that, I quickly got used to the fact that the review is just the look of one person, and now, when watching a film, I even wonder how I will perceive it. I'm not used to giving harsh assessments to anything, that is, cardinally. I'm used to thinking. And I liked the movie. You just need to think out some moments in the film, have your own attitude to what is happening, a certain philosophy. Did you see the commentary on the film that as the chief chief of the GRU did not decide to inform Stalin about the information on the document, which said that the war had begun? Why, he is the head of the service, that you do not report everything, that you have among the intelligence data. Moreover, such information has already been heard more than once. This is such a responsibility, and Stalin, as you know, was not the most gentle and humane leader. Information needs to be verified. And even in your department you suspect people ... I saw in many episodes not negligence, but internal torment, and since you are thinking about this, you involuntarily tie your own impressions to the film. It's simple. By the way from history, Stalin himself did not immediately believe and took the action to transport equipment and enterprises away from the Germans, he himself was not sure about the beginning of the war. And he was given such information. Of course, the story is contradictory and I was not a witness to it ... Someone writes that they made heroes out of prisoners. How immoral it is. I saw something different in this. It turned out to be a very fascinating plot. Yes, people robbed and did bad things, for which they were put in barracks. Is it really necessary for greater persuasiveness, excuse me, to add maniacs or rapists who are completely crazy and would kill their people? And so that they would beat the Germans and bury their own in the ground? The idea is not that. In other words, if you do not know how to read the forms, then you will not understand the essence of the film. When you remain in a difficult situation, then in addition to desires, you begin to realize your intention, the inner motive of what you want. Man is not a primitive creature, and it is impossible to answer a complex question unambiguously. It's hard to make the right decision.It was so with the prisoners, and when they were offered to go virtually to death, there were no volunteers. But they did not succeed not to think about what was going on. Is there value in people who have harmed society. Is society generally ready to accept a person who behaved negatively, but then did the right thing? Can you give a second chance? Interesting thoughts arise. I certainly don't condone criminals. And I'm not talking about forgiveness here. Here is something else, more important not so much for society as for their inner world. Can a criminal change himself? As for the NKVD major, who shot a prisoner in the forehead for his pretentiousness and disrespect. Of course it's tough. But in general, even in a sense, correct. Firstly, he had to do this by law, and secondly, he interfered purely as a citizen. Only this is too idealized. Is it possible to shoot every moron or fool who speaks nonsense? No, of course, it is better to save this bullet for the enemy. But here everything is much more complicated, and the major himself was on his nerves, because the Germans were nearby, the war was on. He offers his own, albeit criminals, options, but here they are rude. It is impossible to say what was the right thing to do. But you can't be a mumble during the war. Whether the script is well thought out, of course not. And there were a lot of blunders, and it will not work to judge this series as a whole as a war. This applies to both the reflection of the Soviet army, our leadership, and the Germans, who were shown here as fools. But the movie "Black Sheep" can be regarded as an interesting story. By the way, the NKVD major himself, the one who shot in the forehead, then said that it was a pity for every sheep of the shepherd. There is no benefit, they say. The viewer will be curious that when you start watching the epigraph to the film, you will see a phrase from the Gospel of John about sheep. "I also have other sheep that are not of this fold, and I must bring them, and they will hear my voice, and there will be One flock and one Shepherd." Well, it's all done for a reason. Whether the criminals were heroes, in my understanding, no. So instilled in society. I want to recall the words of Kozma Prutkov, “Many things are incomprehensible to us, not because our concepts are weak; but because these things are not included in the range of our concepts. " For each of them, the borders of the native are different, and even a common country is not one for all, but one war for all. That's what it is about. Someone gets a lump inside and he is ready to kill when women touch him, for someone - violation of the boundaries of his house. All people are different, but there are boundaries even for those who are accepted below society and who are not considered as individuals. And then the manifestation of internal forces begins. It so happened that the ideal is always higher than society, but the average person will never reach him, and in war the detachment is evaluated by the weakest link. For some, it is an inner crime to even think about wanting to hide, but for someone it is quite normal, but he will try to help in a slightly less acute situation. It’s easy to say, he chickened out. So these criminals were frightened at first, but after all they decided to do a good deed. There were other interesting references as well. But it's hard to get the message across before the viewer sees it. I just wanted to convey that the series is damp, but it is definitely cooler than many Russian ones, where they just shoot and play according to templates. The name of the series "Black Sheep" turned out to be very interesting ... maybe not all sheep will go for meat, but they are quite suitable for wool ... The theme of war is raised and many psychological questions are raised. It is difficult at the moment to determine why you are killing a German, if only for the fact that he did something bad for you, or for what he did for the country ... when to shoot? There were many similar questions in the series. You can definitely watch the series. I wrote a review for those who like to reflect and find different views on cinema, on current events.
Making films about the Second World War is fashionable and still profitable. It will take about 15-20 years and they will remember about it as well as now about the civil war, "and, yes, it was once." That is why there is now such a huge number of crafts on this topic. As a spectator, it is very unclear to me why to stretch out a generally small episode within the framework of the war, for as much as 3 hours and not reveal it? Better than 6 hours, but with a plot worked out to the end, exciting, keeping you in suspense. It turned out, in fact, very watchable against the background of numerous crafts, but with reservations, inaccuracies, blunders and undisclosed images of heroes. This can be attributed to a lack of time. But I don't want to. Who, why, why? There are no answers to these questions. The director left the viewer to think out? So he missed, a week later the viewer will vaguely remember the twists and turns of the plot. The film is divided into 4 episodes, the narrative, as I have already noted superficially, but at least develops logically. It is illogical that the former ZK become heroes! Where is it indicated? By whom, when? What are the criteria for this? If by the criteria that the fugitives saved the village, then this is more like saving their skins for personal interests. If according to the criteria of patriotism, then this is not patriotism, since the zk initially had other motivations. If according to the criteria of the tragedy of mankind, then millions of people at the front did so, shedding blood for their homeland. Again there are more questions than answers. I don't want to touch the love line, because it is here more for show, therefore it has not been worked out at all. Next, the redfins. They are really shown as some kind of beast, and I really can't believe it. Even with Solzhenitsyn, the bastard in uniform is more human and humane. The undoubted and perhaps the only plus is the scenery and costumes, it is clear that professionals worked. But scenery, without a plot, is nothing. To watch or not to watch? There is no definite answer, in search of a quality product about World War II, a huge number of such crafts will have to be reviewed. 7 out of 10
