Storyline: In a peaceful Ukrainian village, the school year is just ending in June 1941. Five young friends set out for a walking trip to Kiev, but their travels are brutally interrupted when they are suddenly attacked by German planes, in the first wave of the Nazi assault on the Soviet Union. When the village itself is attacked and occupied, most of the men flee to the hills to form a guerrilla unit. The others resist the Nazis as well as possible, but soon the village is placed under the command of a Nazi doctor who begins using the town's children as a source of constant blood transfusions for wounded German soldiers. Meanwhile, the small group of young persons tries desperately to take a supply of firearms to the guerrillas.

    North Star is not just the story of a group of people engaged in an anti-Nazi desperate rearguard action against the Germans. It is interesting allegory dealing with issues of bravery, courage and honesty in dealing with the most terrible opponents. Farmers of the North Star could be anyone of us, on the quiet heroism of the banal, routine routine of our lives. Suddenly forced to confront a seemingly tireless evil, they discover the resources and skills they never knew they had. Along the way, important lessons are learned the love and duty and the fundamental importance for the defense of the homeland. On A fascinating story, which is very uplifting. This is the positive opinion of the anti-Nazi resistance Russia would then run howling disapproval of the McCarthy witch-hunters.

    A propaganda film of World War II, which in this case was presented as a good Russian people are terrified by the invading Germans. This was, of course, before the cold war (and during this time the film was re-edited and re-edited to minimize the importance of the perception of the Russians as victims).
    action focuses on two families who are connected by the romance of young directors Anne Baxter and Farley Granger, and what happens to them when their country is invaded. The elder brother is a flyer Granger (played well in a youthful appearance by Dana Andrews), then friend Claudia Baxter is forced to grow up very quickly that his family and friends are increasingly under threat (Claudia is played by Jane Withers, which is great in this.) by Walter Brennan plays the driver who takes the children on a journey that is fraught with danger for them, Walter Huston plays the doctor at the hospital who has finally found intolerable inhumanity of German officers, Erich von Stroheim plays the chief officer, a former colleague of Huston used his medical skills to go wrong.
    may have been written as a propaganda tool, but the film is memorable and has some moments that are particularly well? particularly centered on the city that children are massacred in the streets and houses were burned.

    Representation of the Ukrainian collective farms as a kind of fantasy world country is disgusting. In dedicated Stalinist Lillian Hellman would choose to omit any mention of the fact that this region has experienced mass starvation in 1930 that killed millions of people. The jury is out whether the famine was designed by the state, but the most generous characterization anyone can come up with is criminal negligence. And by the way, the same year the Soviet government exported wheat, thanks to armed troops sent to the countryside to gather the strength of the grain. As a result, many, but not all, of the Ukrainian peasants welcomed the Nazis as liberators. The Nazis were not instinctively hostile to the Ukrainians as Uentermenschen slave, they may have been able to take advantage of the anti-Soviet sentiment.

    One of the worst propaganda stunts I’ve seen, the film is a childish vision of totalitarian rule of Stalin people sing and dance and no one has any worries. In fact, after the terrible reign of the communist majority of the population welcomed the Germans as their saviors (though they later discovered their liberators were almost like the Russians).
    I hope no one takes seriously this film.
