Film : black raven, from the book of 2015 by vasyl shkliar

The other night She showed me a Ukrainian Film called ‘Black Raven’.

No English subtitles, it told a story of the War between Ukraine and Russia in the first part of the 20th Century, dialogue is in Ukrainian, although when Russian is spoken the subtitles are in Ukrainian.

A very good Film, I just want to recommend it to you all, I am hoping it will get English subtitles, although it is one of those Films you can follow without the dialogue.

Obviously parallels can be drawn between then and now, so although a matter of History, the story is relevant today.

There is also a Book of the same title, written by Ukrainian Vasyl Shkliar, pictured above, and published in Ukrainian.

I shall be looking for both of these in English!

I have just found it on Amazon, in English, entitled ‘Raven’s Way’ so shall now order a copy!

Slava Ukraini!


  1. Right thats the Book ordered from Amazon, should be here about the weekend so i am looking forward to reading it!

  2. I have just this Morning finished reading this Book, enjoyed immensely and definitely recommend it to anyone.

    There is mention of my Wife’s home Village as well which gives added interest.

What is your opinion?
