A sympathetic, emotionally persuasive drama describing the friendship of four World War II veterans, their sudden reunion after 25 years and the subsequent effect of this occasion upon their thoughts and evaluations of the past and present.
Moscow, the Soviet Union. Summer of 1956 - eleven years after Hitler Nazis were defeated and buried. Four red army veterans met again at another comrade's funeral. Aleksei, a writer. Viktor, a factory boss. Nikolai, an accountant. And Ivan, a mechanic. All graying and coping with post war life as best as they could. After the funeral, Nikolai invited his friends to go to his place. They experienced quite a few unexpected adventures on their way, including a bit of time in police custody...and ended up getting another comrade involved in the unplanned reunion. Reference of Belorusskiy Railway Station doesn't happen until the last minute of the film. That's where the victorious soldiers returned from war in the Spring of 1945. All actors were the age of real WWII veterans. The film was shot in 1969, so they appeared to be a bit older than their characters supposed to be. But they gave top notch performance. All four leading male actors are dead now, none of them reached the age 70. Aleksei Glazyrin who played Viktor passed away no long after the movie was released.
