About the film “Is It Easy to Be Young?”

The film “Is It Easy to Be Young?” Doesn’t embellish anything. He shows the truth. And because black and white, negative and positive are woven into a tight knot. The story "about them" becomes the story "about us." After all, they are our children! And if the guard of the monument to the Latvian riflemen turned into a ritual that had long since lost its living feelings, then who is to blame - are they or we? Here they answer the questions of the interviewers. Their knowledge of what constitutes the national pride of Latvians is exhausted by four lines from the school textbook. False gives pathos, with which they thank the guys and girls for carrying the guard "in difficult weather conditions." We stood at the monument in the rain, which means that the heroes are already. It was with us, romantics and idealists of the pre-war spill, that such numbers were held. Our children frown from pathos, like a toothache. Because we managed to thoroughly discredit high words. And high concepts. As they say, fathers ate sour apples, and in children oskomin ...


... But what about the page of the biography that is heroic and dramatic in the highest account — in terms of life and death? How can it be inscribed in the biography of this unpleasant for many generations — the page that is called in the newspaper language: international assistance to fraternal Afghanistan? The fact of the matter is that they are fighting in Afghanistan. Those that yesterday were roaring among the rockers to the music of some fashionable band.


Afghan veterans belong to this generation. They had the courage and responsibility, fighting and human qualities in order to adequately fulfill that civil and male duty, which is called military service. So it's time to admit out loud that we were very wrong in them. They did not want to understand them, they executed them with distrust. The trail of this distrust still stretches. Here, look, in the palm of a young veteran pours a thick dark red "star" - the Order of the Red Star. The young man does not carry his reward. Fears of incredulous looks. Somewhere here, closer to the end of the film, you find tears in your eyes. And in front of a neighbor. These are cleansing tears. The film leads us to catharsis consistently and calculated, although the notion of any kind of calculation does not fit with it. But still we have a work of art. His beautiful sample. Remember this before you put an end.
