WWI Drama Based on True Events THE RIFLEMAN arrives on DVD and Digital Oct. 26 from Omnibus and Film MovementBased on true events, a farm boy-turned-soldier experiences the horrors and brutality of WWI in Latvia's Official Oscar Submission for Best International Film... THE RIFLEMAN arrives on DVD and Digital October 26, 2021 from Omnibus Entertainment and Film Movement.

SYNOPSIS

THE RIFLEMAN, from director Dzintars Dreibergs, pays stark witness to the horrors and brutality of the First World War, as seen through the eyes of an innocent 17-year-old farm-boy turned soldier. Though he is underage, and his dad, a former marksman, is overage for the army, they are both conscripted into one of Latvia’s first national battalions. The thrill of training is soon followed by reality, as shells burst around them in the endless mud. He grows up on the battlefield, fighting at the side of his father and brother, their lives are constantly in jeopardy.

Adapted from the book by Aleksandrs Grins, which was banned in the U.S.S.R., the story was based on Grins’ own war experiences in a Latvian battalion. The film was the biggest box office success in Latvia over the past 30 years, and was the country’s submission for Best International Film at the 93rd Academy Awards. Rob Aldam of Backseat Mafia writes that THE RIFLEMAN is “one of the best war films of the last few years,” and Camden Ferrell of Disappointment Media says, ““The crowning achievement of this film is its battle scenes. In gruesome detail, we see the horrors, anxieties, and consequences of war…Some sequences elicit genuine fear and heart racing tension. It is easily one of the most thoroughly invigorating presentations of WWI on film.”
