Defragmentation - Shtirlits' memory
FAZYA, 2005
To the memory of Shtirlits - The Legend and the Man (...) On one side we're dealing with a (computer's) disc defragmentation - an efficient instrument allowing the arrangement and analyses of the available information; on the other - with a man, a spy, trying to recover and arrange important events in his memory, events that took place the days before, that influence his and other people's lives, the evolution of the war, the fate of nations, history itself!

Shtirlits or Seventeen moments of spring "Seventeen moments of spring" is a film that made history in Soviet cinematography, jokes and the lives of several (including post-soviet) generations... Soviet spy, Colonel Isayev, alias Shtirlits, SS sturmbahnfuhrer, is carrying out his last mission. He finds himself at the edge of failure and is caught by the Gestapo. In order to stay alive and accomplish his mission, he must re-establish everything in his memory! All the latest events!
