Fighting between German and Soviet troops is recounted in flashback by Makarov, who was a prisoner of the Germans. The powerful, suspenseful tale is told in a near-documentary style, incorporating a great deal of stock war footage. It is brilliantly photographed by Edward Tisse (who also

directed), the famed Soviet cameraman who shot Sergei Eisenstein's masterpieces, POTEMKIN, OCTOBER, and ALEXANDER NEVSKY, and who devised ingenious methods of getting his shots. THE IMMORTAL GARRISON, however, does not display many of the techniques of montage associated with the work of

Eisenstein; instead it concentrates on realistic documentation. (In Russian; English subtitles.)
