The author bears in mind that the hermeneutic analysis of a media text comprehension involves a comparison with a historical, cultural tradition and reality; insight into its logic; comparison of media images in historical and cultural contexts combined with the historical, hermeneutical analyses of the structural, plot, ethical, ideological and iconographic/visual analyses of media stereotypes and media text characters.

Keywords: media text; analysis; media culture; media education; media competence; Soviet movies of 1941-1942 about the war.
