The title refers to the Soviet Union's term for the democratic resistance movements in eastern bloc countries; this documentary focuses on the one in Lithuania, incorporating numerous testimonies from surviving members. Directors Jonas Ohman and Vincas Sruoginis deliver a worthwhile history lesson, along with some compelling tales of espionage and wartime romance. In fact much of this—particularly the parts about double agents who sold out their comrades to the enemy—feels like a good drama, though that's not to say it downplays the suffering of Lithuanians under Soviet occupation. The movie also offers a valid critique of the U.S. government, which denied aid to the Lithuanian resistance despite trumpeting its achievements. In English and subtitled Lithuanian.
