DA NANG (VNS) — The Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Da Nang will screen White Tiger today in celebration of Victory Day (May 9).
The film, which is based on the novel, The Tank Crewman, or the White Tiger by Russian novelist Illya Boyashov, is about furious and prolonged fighting by both former Soviet and Nazi troops during the World War II and the appearance of an extraordinary tank – a special version of the T-34 that matched the power of Nazis' White Tiger.
The 2012-made Russian action film directed by Karen Shakhnazarov, was approved by the Culture, Sport and Tourism Ministry for public screenings in cinemas nationwide.
The film was selected as the Russian entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar at the 85th Academy Awards, but did not make the final shortlist. — VNS
