Very very very good.
If you’re looking for a typical war movie, this is not it, so a note to all the testosterone-pumped carnage-craving war buffs out there, don’t bother. Although the film is about Russian characters in WWII, don’t expect to see any Nazis, cannons, blood, gore, etc. It’s not a film about people who cause a war or who fight a war. It’s a film about ordinary people who war happens to and the choices they make in dealing with it.
Acting, cinematography, writing: all perfect 10s here. You’ll certainly appreciate it if you’re Russian like me, but even if not, you’ll probably love it. If you speak no Russian, look for the RUSCICO (Russian Cinema Council) DVD version. It’s got subtitles in about 14 different languages, but the English dubbing on this one I’d say is just as good. It’s of course not as good as the original Russian track (some stuff is lost in translation), but just as good as the English subtitles. So go check it out, especially if you’re studying film in any aspect.
