Liberation-USSR Film Series 1970-71

Liberation (Russian: Освобожде́ние, translit. Osvobozhdenie, German: 'Befreiung', Polish: 'Wyzwolenie') is an epic five-part film series (combined running time: 445 minutes) considered as the most colossal WWII movie ever made in the Soviet Union. Filmed from 1968 to 1971, the first part was released during 1970 for the 25th anniversary of Victory Day. The films were a Soviet-Polish-East German-Italian-Yugoslavian co-production (by the studios Mosfilm, ZF-Start/PRF-ZF, Deutsche Film AG, Dino de Laurentiis Cinematografica and Avala Film, respectively) although chiefly made in the USSR. They were directed by Yuri Ozerov. The script was written by Yuri Bondarev and Oscar Kurganov.
