"Young officers of the Russian Empire return home after defeating Napoleon. The winners, the guards officers are too energetic and patriotic, so they believe that they can change Russia. In 1816, a secret political society was created, the first Dekabrist organization called the Union of Salvation. Its creators are the military and Soviet elite of the Russian Empire. They do not want to live the same life, because they are sure that the people deserve better. For the sake of changing Russia, young officers are ready to sacrifice everything, and even their lives… The Patriotic War is far behind, the empire is about to wake up from sleep, ready to carry out reforms and abolish serfdom. However, while the autocracy is in no hurry to loosen the reins, the wind of change, along with the word "Revolution", brings a time of anger: a group of nobles is planning a coup d'état. Their ambitions and dreams of the future will become a springboard for the events that soaked the white snow of December 1825 with scarlet blood."

I have been keeping an eye on this film for a while now. It looks good with an interesting story and excellent historical detail. I hope that one day there will be an English sub-titled DVD of the film.

"In 1816 … Its creators are the military and Soviet elite"

Is time travel involved?

Seen it twice but sadly never with subtitles or dubbed. First time saw with only vague knowledge of the Decemberests but after read a bit on it so the next viewing got a bit more what was happening.
It has to be the best reenactment of a artillery barrage in the period

The Union of Salvation contains the best depiction of the effects of canister shot at 100-150 meters range ever filmed, hands down.
