BACK TO THE FATHERLAND is a documentary film that tells the story of young people leaving their home country to try their luck somewhere else. A common tale these days if these young women and men weren't from Israel and if they wouldn't be moving to Germany and Austria, where their families were persecuted and killed.

First of all, I have to say that I really enjoyed this movie. As a film maker, I really wanted to show how the events of WWII were really all about Stalin. The best thing I could do was to have a movie about it. To me this was the most interesting part of the movie. The part I liked the most was the very beginning. Hitler is introduced and I found it very interesting. As the movie went on, I found myself curious about Stalin and how he had gotten all the advantages in the war, but how he had really failed to get rid of his enemies. The movie is actually very honest, and very true. I especially liked the part when Stalin and Hitler got to know each other. I thought that was a very interesting way to talk about the war and the terrible history. I thought this was a great movie. I recommend it to people who like movies about the world wars, WWII and the people who fought them. I also recommend it to people who like documentaries and also want to know what really happened in the war and why it was so terrible.

In 1974, at the age of 15, Peter Gorlitski was sent to his ancestral home in Northern Poland to be educated at the local Catholic school. Having witnessed the Communist regime's genocidal treatment of the Jews and then the purges themselves, Gorlitski was outraged by the parallels between the death camps of Nazi Germany and the "death camps" of the Communist regime. He told his teacher, "I'm going to a concentration camp. The concentration camp is all that I want to see. I'll be no better than the dead." In 1977, Gorlitski and his sister were beaten by a group of angry men outside their home. They were then abducted by unknown men who forced them to travel to the far north of Russia, where they were held as political prisoners for five years. Gorlitski was finally released in 1979, having been badly beaten and psychologically traumatized. Despite the brutality of his captors, Gorlitski felt that his captors were hypocrites and murderers. He also believed that his captors, like the Nazi's, had stolen the intellectual property of others. Gorlitski spoke at a gathering of several hundred people in 2008, and was surrounded by sympathetic observers and survivors of the camps. At the end of the event, he said, "I am sick of being sick. I am sick of the stupidity of the world." The final comment that he made to the audience was, "The power of a good idea is that it can make you well." The lesson of this documentary is that ideas can do terrible things to people, and that they can also do great things to make the world a better place. "The Fatherland" will be of interest to those interested in what happened in Soviet Poland during the Holocaust. The Soviet Union, like other Communist regimes, treated the Jews, Poles, and others in the Soviet Union as inferior peoples, while the majority of Soviet citizens were loyal members of the Communist Party. The film ends with a question from Gorlitski, who asked the audience if they were willing to "take responsibility for their own children?" He then asked, "What do you think will happen to us when we grow up?" His final remark was, "We are not human. We are animals. And we have all the responsibility to protect ourselves."

I really like this film, and I think it's a real eye-opener on what is going on in Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East. What do we know about the Russian's and the Iranians, about the Turkish's and the Israelis? The answers are not what you'd like to hear, but it's a good start for learning more about what is happening. I also like the interviews with people that we don't usually hear from, and it's great to see how the real people involved in these situations are portrayed. I highly recommend this film, it's important, and I'm happy that we're getting better pictures of the situation on the ground, and not just sensationalist news about it.

If I could change the ending, I would, but I can't. It's a good movie but, as it is, I would rather have watched it again and again.

If you love the Soviet Union, this is an excellent documentary. If you love America, you'll probably love this documentary. The author of this film is a Russian diplomat who defected to the West in 1990. His wife and daughters came to America with him and he now lives in the U.S. The Russians used to be very ruthless and this documentary is a unique document of that. The defection is not only about Communism, but also about a couple of families and their lives. It's hard to find people who don't know about this story. The film is very well shot and edited. The interviews are very interesting and are very interesting in their own way. You don't need to know anything about the Soviet Union or Communism to enjoy this documentary. If you like the Soviet Union or Communism, this is a must-see documentary. It's an amazing story of how a defector and family ended up in America. The film is also very interesting and worth seeing.

After seeing this, I am really surprised to say that there are quite a few fans of Michael Moore and what he does. He was a huge influence on me when I was a kid and I can say that his documentary is almost as good as his TV show. I don't remember any real complaints when I saw the documentary, but when I watched it I didn't like it at all. But watching it again, I saw that it was quite the opposite. The documentary is divided into four chapters: his youth in Bowling Green, his experiences in Bowling Green, his arrival in Hollywood and his rise to the top of the Hollywood food chain. All of his interviews are interesting and engaging and I really liked how he deals with many important issues (including our current situation) without losing his tone or identity as a filmmaker. There are also some moments where you can feel that he was trying to do something different with his subjects, which is really good. Overall, I'm very glad that he made this. It was kind of a shame that it was a trilogy, but it's OK. I personally think that it should have been made into a book, and it was. But it was not needed. I have seen this already and I don't really remember that much from it. I liked it anyway. I think that this is an excellent documentary. 9/10

This movie is amazing. I don't want to give anything away, but it takes a man to become a man, and a woman to be a woman. I am in a relationship with a woman who I adore, and she is an excellent partner. She understands my needs and wants to fulfill them. She does not expect me to do anything. She cares about me and I care about her. I am looking forward to a long, happy life together. As I said in my summary, there is a lot of power in this movie. It is about respect, and when you respect someone, it makes them respect you. As it is said in the movie, "If you do not respect me, I will not respect you." That is a good motto. I am proud to say that I do not treat women like they are disposable, and that I respect women, and they respect me. I hope everyone will watch this movie and learn a little bit about themselves, their lives, and what they are capable of. Thank you to the director, and everyone else involved in the making of this movie. It is an amazing movie, and I think everyone should see it.

It is with great sadness that I have to leave the Russian people in the dark about the fate of Chechen people. They are expected to be destroyed. The future of Chechnya is uncertain. Our families, friends and their relatives have been forced to flee, a fate worse than that of any of the Chechen people. They have been caught between Chechen warlord Razmanian, who is allied with the Kremlin, and Russian government, which has imposed an embargo on Chechen imports and exports. Russia is trying to get the international community to impose an embargo, by means of European Union and NATO sanctions. It seems that this embargo is the only thing the Kremlin has to offer the Chechen people. It is unclear to me what the Kremlin's motives are in this case. In fact, Chechens are living under a vicious warlord, who appears to be allied with Moscow, even if he is a Kremlin loyalist. This warlord uses the Chechen people for his own purposes, as a bulwark against an approaching NATO threat. In addition, the Kremlin does not care about the Chechens. This warlord has nothing to do with Chechen people. What has the Kremlin to gain from attacking Chechnya? Russian leadership is aware of this situation. But it has decided to focus on the confrontation with the West, with both Chechen warlords and the Kremlin. This crisis, the exact opposite of a Chechen genocide, could have been avoided if the Kremlin had wanted to solve the problem in Chechnya, and had been willing to make concessions to Chechnya's leadership. The Kremlin has not shown a clear direction in the past, and it appears that it is now more interested in its own interests, than those of Chechnya's people. Despite the humanitarian crisis in Chechnya, the Kremlin has been more interested in keeping Chechens separated from their families, and in playing the blame game with the Kremlin. The Kremlin has failed to present a clear picture of the real situation, and in the process has failed to show the Chechen people what they have been told - that the Kremlin is backing a warlord and war crimes. It has given a false impression that the Kremlin is the only party that is responsible for the crisis in Chechnya. It has also failed to show the full picture, of the situation in Chechnya, of the Crimean annexation, of the Russian occupation of Crimea and of Russian repression of Chechen people. The Kremlin has been more concerned with presenting a false image of the Russian Federation. It has deceived the people of Chechnya, by using Chechen people as scapegoats. Instead of presenting a clear picture, it has been more interested in blaming the Chechen people. Russia has been able to present the problem as a Chechen genocide, in order to justify its military intervention in Chechnya, and to present Chechen people as responsible for the crisis. The Kremlin has also been able to present the problem in Chechnya as an ethnic Russian

While he hasn't done much on television in the last decade, Nick Broomfield was a television pioneer who rose above his predecessors and made his mark on television. Not having a great amount of material to work with, Broomfield went through some big ideas, while remaining on top of his game. The idea of a documentary on the Arab World is one of the most amazing ones I have ever seen. The fact that it was actually shot on location in the Arab World was a stroke of genius. Broomfield's first project was a film called "They Are Out There." This was a real deal. It was filmed in Africa and Middle Eastern countries, but the first part of it, the Islamic world, is shot in England. It was filmed as part of a travelogue, which Broomfield later referred to as "The Vietnam Road Trip." But "They Are Out There" was far more than just a travelogue, it was also a celebration of the diversity of the Arab World. This is what this film is about. The Middle East is the region of the world that most people associate with terror, war, and war-related issues. But the Middle East is also one of the most diverse places on earth. It is a place of wonderful people who have fought for their country's rights and even more importantly, their freedom. I love the history of the Middle East and how different cultures have come together to work together for peace. This documentary is a must see for everyone who has ever been in the Middle East.

Very important documentary on the past and present of Israel's foreign policy. It is informative and is well worth watching. It gives a complete picture of how Israel has developed from an Arab state, through occupation, to a state able to defend itself and its people. A must see for anyone who wants to understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It gives a detailed look into Israel's foreign policy and highlights the role of religious beliefs in promoting Israel's political position and as a means of justifying its actions.

This is a very good documentary. I first saw it at a lecture in Austin, TX (where I live) by Benjamin Novak, one of the organizers of the conference. In my opinion, it has more to say about the Russian revolution than about communism. For example, we can see that the revolution did not start as a social revolution. It was a political revolution with the aim of defeating the Soviet-style Stalinism. This movie is mainly about the Bolshevik Party, which is a kind of international left-wing organization. It was very important for Bolshevism. It is not just a political party, but also an organizational body. And this organization, which has hundreds of members, mostly women, is the symbol of a revolution which is taking place throughout the world. It has a strong influence on the social movements. It is a party of the working class, and this fact is very important for us to understand the revolution. The movie also has a very strong analysis of the role of Lenin and Stalin. They are both very important for us to understand, because they are the main leaders of the revolution. But they were not responsible for the defeat of the revolution, and they had a lot of important problems. They should have faced the internal problems, like the doubts of Lenin and Stalin. But the movie shows the weakness of Lenin and Stalin. For example, when they tried to change the parliamentary system, they would also get support from the party. But later on they did not have any clear idea about what the reason was for this. It seems that Lenin and Stalin never really wanted to be the leaders of the party, but they just wanted to be a leader in the party. In the end, it was their weakness, not their strength. The other problem they had was a lack of clear strategy. They were not really clear about how they should carry out their revolution, and they did not have a clear idea of what their revolution would be. When they were attacking the capitalists, they had to work against the capitalist society itself. But at the same time they were trying to get the support of the capitalists, which was not a clear idea. This weakness is reflected in the fact that Lenin and Stalin were facing the same problems of Lenin and Trotsky. The party was in the middle of a revolution, and as a result, they were not really able to unite the people in the party. Lenin and Stalin also faced the same problem, and they were facing a revolution which was not going to happen quickly. This makes it difficult to organize the revolution, and they were forced to use a strategy which was not really working. In this way Lenin and Stalin were not able to defeat the revolution and the Soviet-style Stalinism. But their weakness was more than their strength. In conclusion, I think that this movie is very important, because it is a very important movie. It shows what Lenin and Stalin tried to do in Russia, and it shows what they tried to do in the world. It is not a

I have watched this film numerous times and consider it one of the best documentaries ever made. One of the best in my opinion is "War of the Worlds". It's a lot more interesting than this movie. I really can't believe that the main cast has actually had a successful career in Hollywood, a trend which is so unhealthy and is usually due to the many nepotism and corruption. The main villain of the film is not only the sinister Kubrick, but also the aforementioned Taylor Hackford who is the most influential movie executive in the world. I can only hope that Hackford gets the recognition he deserves for all his achievements in the cinema and that Kubrick will be able to learn from Hackford. I also recommend this film to those who are unable to make peace with their own generation.

I have never been to Russia, but I had the chance to visit during the closing of the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics. I was a little apprehensive about this movie, not because I am a Russophile, but because of the hype surrounding it. I was not disappointed. I would have to agree that the documentaries are a little overlong and often far too much in-your-face, but they are definitely not in any way biased. It is always fun to watch these guys when they are discussing their findings, and it is a real pleasure to hear them talk about their work. I think the first half of the movie is a little boring, but it does pick up in the second half. I think they did a great job of presenting the documentary on a more personal level. The reason for that is the fact that these guys are talking about their own personal experiences, and they share them with the audience. It is not really that important that the viewer understands the background, but it helps a lot if you understand how the guys got to this point in their lives. The real brilliance of this movie is that it makes you feel like you are there with them. It makes you feel like you are living it, and you really feel like you are the center of it all. There is no doubt in my mind that these guys really have done something extraordinary, and they should be commended for it.

A recent event took place in Slovakia where a part of the Slovak army was captured by Ukrainian forces. It was a huge blow for the Slovakian people and it was a huge shame that this was not resolved by the Slovakian government. The Slovakian government does not show the least interest in the matter. The National Security Committee of Slovakia did not do anything about the situation, and I am sure that the Ukrainian authorities have no intention of solving it. This film is a documentary that makes the viewer feel very good that the Slovakian government is listening to the Slovak people. The government of Slovakia has shown no interest in the matter. The movie is not a film that criticizes the Slovak government, but a film that expresses a feeling of frustration of the Slovakian people.

As I was watching this film, I found myself wondering why I had not heard of this film before. It was a great film to watch because it was a true story, but at the same time, it was a simple story of a father's love and commitment to his son. It is sad that the world does not want to believe that people can love their children unconditionally. But at the same time, the film showed that children can be very loving and will not stop loving their parents even if they do not like them. I really hope that this film will inspire people to not judge a book by its cover.

Dr. Daniel Halpern (He was a witness for the CIA during the Warren Commission) is one of the people who has always been critical of how the CIA views the United States. After his wife and daughter were killed by the Russian Chechen warlords, he realized that the CIA was keeping him in the dark about the war, and knew nothing about the missile interceptor interceptors and radar sites that could save the day for the American people. "United States of Secrets" was a film that was well-done, although it did not contain any evidence that the Soviet Union did or did not commit genocide. One of the things that bothered me about the film was that Dr. Halpern says that the CIA is doing a good job, and then goes on to say that the Russians are doing a bad job. Why the CIA is doing a good job, is a mystery to me. That was one of the most telling statements I had seen in the film, but it was very important. The film was very well-done, and should be viewed by everyone who cares about the U.S. Constitution.

I just watched this documentary for the first time in several years and was compelled to see it again. What a powerful and insightful film that has some powerful but extremely hard-hitting truths. I think it's important to tell the truth because it's an open-ended topic, and people who are not ready to listen to the truth, will be prejudiced. There's a lot of incredible facts presented, but also a lot of lies that are not true. The filmmakers are making a concerted effort to present the truth as we know it in a way that is compelling and true, and I think it was very successful. I also want to point out that the filmmaker has gone to great lengths to get the facts right. The documentary is very factual and very much in the mainstream, and I think that's the biggest strength. The director is a great storyteller and the footage is very well-structured. I also loved the fact that the filmmaker never resorts to the typical Hollywood's style of montages or narration. She is always able to tell the story in an entertaining way without falling into the old-fashioned Hollywood-isms. I also loved the fact that the filmmaker never apologizes for what she's saying. If she was wrong, she's willing to admit it. This is an incredibly powerful, important and important documentary that people should see.

Very well made documentary. It's fascinating to see the way that some Western governments try to control other people's minds. While I was watching this documentary I could see the government's concerns with different countries that have had mental health problems. While some of the statistics are quite inaccurate (the number of mentally ill people in the U.S. is only about 1 in 3.5 million, as opposed to the figure of 1 in 30.000 for the U.K.) they are still worth noting. It's quite clear that the U.S. government is trying to make the U.K. seem like a mental hospital. Even when the director mentions that "some people are born with mental problems, others develop them" he suggests that U.S. psychiatrists are more "normal" than British ones. They make it seem like a "normal" disease to try to control people. Even when one of the psychiatrists in the documentary admits that he is afraid of committing suicide, and that the U.S. government is not only trying to control people, but also in the U.K. to "keep people in their homes" (the U.S. government does the same thing). It's quite a shame that a country as rich as the U.K. has to have the government doing that to people. We should be able to take a very good look at the way that people are treated in the U.S. and see if that's a fair way to treat people. As a U.S. citizen I do agree with the opinions of the U.S. government that mentally ill people should not be treated like criminals. But it is important to keep in mind that mental illness is a very personal matter, and the people that are suffering from it should be able to speak out about their experiences. The documentary is quite informative, and you will come away with a new perspective on what's going on in the U.K. And it's also important to remember that mental illness is a very personal matter. If you are a U.S. citizen you may feel like a victim of the U.S. government. If you are a U.K. citizen you may feel like a victim of the U.S. government. I recommend this documentary to anyone that is interested in the subject. I would recommend it to people who are interested in the U.S. government and how it deals with its citizens.

This documentary is a must see. A documentary about how far our country has fallen since the Cold War and how Americans have lost their sense of patriotism. This is an eye opener. And I have seen the interviews with one of the main subjects in the documentary. I have to say, the interviewee is one of the most articulate and courageous people I have ever seen. The interviews he has with the different military men and women who served in the US Army is amazing. One can hear the pain and anger in his voice. I would say that the main question of the documentary is how people in the US Army were willing to go against their own leaders and give their lives for their country. I have seen the interview with Colonel Harold Greene, and I am sure that he agrees with me. The interviews with the different military officers who fought in the war in Iraq are also interesting. I would like to know what they thought about what was going on in Iraq and what they felt about the war. I also want to know if they had any sense of patriotism, even though they were in the military. The film is based on the book by Mike Braddock, and it is very interesting. The film is made with some great effects and interviews. The film is definitely worth seeing.

This is the only documentary I've seen that makes it absolutely clear that the U.S. government was complicit in the crimes of 9/11. After seeing this film, you will realize that it is absolutely impossible for U.S. government to be that innocent. It is, after all, the U.S. government that gave the green light to the U.S. military to go into Afghanistan and kill the Taliban leaders, and then they went on to kill more people than they did in all the wars in the world combined. That is an absolutely unbelievable fact. So this is the documentary that you need to see, if you want to know how the U.S. government is responsible for the crimes of 9/11.

It is the greatest documentary I have ever seen. The way this is shown is so touching and so moving. I've been an independent film maker for 20 years, and this documentary is by far the best one I've seen. The way that the documentary is shown is not a documentary at all, but more like a documentary about the directors. They speak with passion and honesty, and really try to explain their experience, as much as they can. It's an amazing documentary, with great footage, great interviews, and a great story. It was also really inspiring to see how hard it is to make documentaries, and the success of this documentary really shows how hard it is. It is truly an amazing documentary.

The film is a very well put together and entertaining film. The pacing is very good, and the film never gets boring. The story is very good, with a very strong message. I really like the scene when the father is sitting in front of the television, and we hear the news of a war being fought in Afghanistan. It makes you think about the entire war in Iraq. The director of the film is a great actor, and the film is very well shot. This film was the first film I saw that really interested me, and I really enjoyed it.

One of the great films to emerge from the late 90s and early 2000s. The production values were first-rate and the story was gripping. While the film is not one of my favorites, it is a classic in its own right. The film is not at all politically biased. Its greatest strength is its examination of the roles of the media, the media itself, and the issues it raises. It examines the role of the media in society and in media itself, and what media can do when it's all too controlled. The film is long and complex, but never boring. I hope that anyone who reads this will see this film and be inspired.

I was shocked at the amount of propaganda being peddled by the Zionists in this film. I had never heard of this movie before seeing it, and was appalled at the nonsense that was being spread about the Holocaust. I was so upset that I ended up leaving the theatre. It is truly a shame that the makers of this movie are so dedicated to the idea that it was all a fabrication by the Jews. It is a shame that the Zionists would want to discredit the Holocaust by pushing a false story about it. I was glad that the film makers did not delve into the actual events that caused the Holocaust. The film makers could have easily exposed the actual people who perpetrated the Holocaust, but instead they chose to focus on the 'advocates' of the Holocaust and the 'victims' of the Holocaust. This makes it impossible for anyone to even begin to question the facts of the Holocaust. The film makers had the potential to provide a great educational tool for people who want to learn more about the Holocaust, but instead they failed miserably. It is a shame that the makers of this film had such a high opinion of themselves. I would urge anyone who is interested in learning more about the Holocaust to read more than the few facts presented in this film. The Holocaust was a terrible tragedy, but if people can't even come to grips with the reality of it, then what hope does the world have of being a better place?

My son, who was born in Iran, is very open minded and interested in the history of Iran. He was also interested in the film, and wanted to know about the people that lived there. The film covered a variety of topics, such as the American occupation of Iran and the rise of the Islamic Republic. The main focus of the film was on the people of the Islamic Republic. The interviews were very interesting and in many cases very informative. The film did not focus on the people of Iran as much as the people of the Islamic Republic. In many cases the people interviewed were not the most knowledgeable people in the world, but were able to speak their mind. The interviews were very insightful and well-done. The documentary did an excellent job of bringing together information from various perspectives to form a larger picture. I would highly recommend the film. It is well worth watching.

I'm from Finland, and this is my first ever post on IMDb. My father was killed in Iraq, and my mother was traumatized by the loss of my father. I have had many problems with the war in Iraq, and I know the pain of war. I have seen lots of documentaries on the war and how the government of the United States was looking for excuses to get the war going. This movie makes me understand the reasons behind the war. I don't think that I will ever get to see a war that was completely unjustified. I think that there was no need to fight wars. I think that there is no need to fight wars for the sake of the state. I think that there should be a very good reason for the war, and that people should be allowed to say no to war, and not just have war as a way of life. I think that it is important that people of the United States understand that it is not just a war to have the best in the world, but it is a war to protect the world from a threat that is very hard to understand. This movie makes me realize that war is a way to make people to be "united" and "in the same company". I hope that it will become a part of history. I hope that it will be used as a reason to get rid of war.

The Russian's are not all good. The CIA is not all good. If you are a Russian, I will tell you that you are not to blame for your country's problems. I am an American and I have lived in the US for about 25 years. I have been to Russia twice, and I saw the place. It is a beautiful country, with great architecture and people. It is an odd state of affairs that Russian-Americans are more likely to sympathize with one another than Americans are with Russians. Some Russians, like Mr. Putin, are not really Russians. They are "patsies", trained to believe that they are better than they really are, to make a point in the world. In the meantime, the rest of us are not to blame. We all have been duped by the Russian media and the Russian government. All this talk about Russian-Americans is mostly propaganda, designed to keep the people under the Russian state, and to make them feel better about the situation. Mr. Putin is playing a cynical game. He knows that his regime will not last, and that a change will not come soon. His problem is that the people will not accept it. It is very difficult to convince them. He has not succeeded. The American media does not know how to tell the story. I was not surprised when the BBC made a TV documentary on the anniversary of the Russian coup, saying that the US was right, and that the Russians are not to blame. I was not surprised when the BBC showed an American film about the KGB and the CIA. This is all propaganda. The people have to be convinced, and that is what the American media is doing. The question that remains is whether the American media will ever be able to tell the story. I am not so sure. But it is good that they are trying. This documentary is a start. There are other documentaries, but they are not as well made.
