Red Nazi created many so-called crimes of counter-revolution
18 February 2016 | by franz-30254See all my reviews

The movie Ve stínu (2012) is not just for a story about an unjust verdict that "a supposed history with Jewish smugglers supporting Zionist terrorists".

Red Nazi created many so-called crimes of counter-revolution and brutally suppressed with death penalty. The movie Ve stínu (2012) exhibited some historical tenses. And nowadays people can still see like N.Korea, or is else dictatorship power imposed a crime of subversion as trumped-up.

The people of legal system states are not easy to understand the theme- connotation of the movie Ve stínu (2012), especially young generation.
