Critic Reviews

This movie is an excellent example of how the Russian film industry, financed by the Russian Ministry of Culture, uses culture to brainwash the Russian people and create hatred towards Russia's neighbors. "The Match" is about a supposed soccer game between a local team in Kyiv, Ukraine and a group of Nazi officers during the World War II German occupation of Kyiv. The Soviet Ukrainian side is warned by the Nazis that they should lose the game or be shot, but the heroic Soviet Ukrainians decide to beat the Nazi team and are subsequently murdered. There really was a soccer game between a Kyiv team and Nazi officers but no one was shot after the game. The entire episode was a lie created by Soviet propaganda after the war. That's all and fine certainly. After all, there are many films which do not exactly follow true historical facts. The problem with "The Match" is that it completely twists the truth and lies about various other historical events with a goal of creating hatreds towards Ukrainians. For example, in the movie, anyone who speaks Ukrainian is portrayed as a Nazi collaborator whereas Russian speakers are heroic Soviet patriots. The film even goes so far as to show Ukrainians as being "subhuman", an example of which is the scene where the young women dressed in Ukrainian traditional costumes greet the commanding Nazi officer with bread and salt. However, the prior scene shows the women taking the loaf of bread from a filthy and grotesque toilet where they had forgotten it. Fascist propaganda scenes like this, are obviously made to portray the Ukrainians as being dirty "subhumans" and together with the fact that Ukrainian speakers in the movie are all Nazi collaborators is meant to create hatred towards Ukrainians, their culture and language. This is especially offensive to Ukrainians who lost more than 8 million people in the most horrific ways possible during WWII at the hands of the Nazis. What is interesting is that "The Match" is not the only Russian movie that portrays Ukrainians as fascists, Nazis or subhumans. It becomes rather obvious, especially now, after the Russian invasion and war against Ukraine, that the Russian government was preparing its citizens for such a war against Ukraine. The anti-Ukrainian lies and Russian fascist propaganda spread in this movie are the same sorts of lies that the Russian government is now using against Ukraine and its people to justify its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea and its support of the terrorist "republics" in the Donbas. The creation of this movie truly is a hate crime and it should be dealt with as such.
