Quiet Flows the Don / Тихий Дон (1957). Part 1 (English subtitles).

A screen adaptation of the
...Quiet Flows the Don / Тихий Дон (1957). Part 1 (English subtitles).

A screen adaptation of the novel of the same name by Soviet writer Mikhail Sholokhov, a Nobel Prize winner. The film depicts the destinies of the Don Cossacks during the First World War and the Civil War in Russia. Cossack Grigory Melekhov lives in a village of Veshenskaya. He is in love with Aksynia, but on his father’s insistence, has to marry another girl. Finding out about his love affair with Aksynia, his young wife leaves home. Shortly before the war, Grigory and his beloved also leave the farm. While on the Austrian front, Grigory learns of the Czar’s abdication and of the end of the war. He is on his way home where Aksynia must be waiting for him.

I would highly recommend this film to anyone that is interested in Cossack history and culture and/or early Soviet history.

The films were made for audiences that already had some knowledge of Cossacks and this period in history (WWI, Russian revolution, and the civil war). There are scenes that take place in parts 2 and 3 that no background information is given on, and if you are not familiar with the history will be somewhat confusing. It is highly recommended that one do a little reading online on Cossack history during this period before viewing this miniseries. It would also help to have a basic understanding of Russian revolution and subsequent civil war.
