Bitter Harvest is about one of the darkest periods in Ukraine’s history, while boosting how superior the Soviet Union thought it was to its bordering neighbors. Like most movies of this nature, this story really only focuses on one particulars town struggles which seem to highlight all the struggles as a whole. The movie hardly does the truth justice, but tries to tell tales about survival when there was really no hope at all. These events of the early 1900’s could really be compared to that of the Holocaust, which Bitter Harvest does its job of introducing us to them but not much else.
