I am currently watching the movie Rasputin  made in the USSR, 1977, direction by Elem Klimov - (I'm watching with English subtitles).

it is fascinating me - I don't know anything about this movie - could not find anything on it on the IMBd.  E Klimov is listed, but not this particular movie.  

The sets are incredible.  

I wonder about what you learned historians might know about this movie from Soviet Russia.  Please let me know your thoughts.

thank you

There was a tiny buried blurb in today's Dallas Morning News about Putin removing the name of Volgograd from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and replacing it with the city's previous name, Stalingrad.  The article mentioned other recent decisions which appear to resurrect the old Soviet system.  Putin is doing this to "commemorate the fundamental turning point of the WWII." - as quoted in the newspaper.

The article did not mention other specific decisions save for the old Soviet National Anthem.

I'm curious as to your learned opinions for the reasons behind this.  Is it really to bring back the memories of the war?  Or is there more to it?

regards,
Kyriaki
