Oh, it's something socialistic? If was called "Befreiung" ("liberation") in the GDR, I expect the worst.

Over there "Befreiung" was always meant by the communist leaders in the relation to the overrun of Eastern Germany by the Soviet Army in 1945. The rest of the population, in the GDR, in Western Germany, too (also in Poland) have never ever seen that as "liberation".

Forbidden joke in the GDR: "O.k., we should survive the next World War - but annother liberation?"

The images are stretched too much. The IMDB says the correct ratio is 2.20 : 1.

I assume that the black and white scenes were filmed in 4:3 so that archive footage could be inserted.

Very possible.

@Ingo of course you are right, it is definitely NOT perfect movie from the historical point of view, but the most interesting is how it was made in times when CGI was unknown. So forget about special effects, even scale models are rare. Here most of things is real, they've made 1:1 replicas of planes and other vehicles (and most of them has been destroyed during the filming - some experts think that it is the most expensive film ever made). Half of the movie was filmed in the total plans, in one shot we can see hundreds vehicles and even more people. These pictures don't show what this movie really is (once I had opportunity to see some scenes on big screen and this was really incredible), that's why is still worth to watch, even after 40 years.

complicated movie set up his....Liberation originally consisted of five pictures.....The Flaming Bulge (1970),The Breakthrough(1970),both of which were on the Kursk battle, The Direction And Main Blow(1971), The Battle For Berlin(1972),The Last Storm(1972), altogether ran for 9 hours.
An overseas version called The Great Battle running 2 hours and dubbed into English was compiled from the first 2 films and was an account only of the Kursk battle.
after a 5 year gap three more films were released and each of these three films was divided into a four part mini series!!!! these films were The Soldiers Of freedom (1977), The Battle For Moscow(1985)and Stalingrad (1989).
in the Battle For Moscow film what looks like a turretless T34 on fire is actually a turretless T34 recovery vehicle propped to look as if its turret had been blown off in combat....the only wartime plane in the films is a DC3 Dakota...German FW fighters and Russian La fighters are "played" by suitably propped up Russian Yak 11 or Yak 18 fighters...German Panzer IV and Tiger
tanks are played by Russian T44 tanks..German Jagdpanther and Elefant tanks (in the Soldiers Of Freedom film)were played by propped up Russian SU100 SPGs..Mosfilm Studio in Moscow provided most of the Russian tanks and converted russian tanks into German ones..also in storage at Mosfilm was 20 original pieces of furniture from Hitlers office, including a large table, monogramed chair,table lamp and chairs. battle scenes were usually filmed with 5 cameras, usually around 6,000 extras were employed at peak battle scenes.

In the Soviet Union people also condemned many western movies that nobody saw.

@3loader: I wasn't talking about movies, it was about the real history.

I cannot remember any Sovietish movie, which was aired in the Western TV in the 80ies. In the DDR-programme (I grew up, where their two stations were available) they had shown them, but I cannot remember any details or names of them. More in my mind are productions from Hungaria or Czechoslovakia. And the better dubbing of the Danish "Olsen Banden"-movies.
