The middle child, 9 year old Hadji, believing his older sister Raissa is dead along with his parents finds a place to leave his baby brother and gets swept up in the migration of survivors away from the war front. The refugees cross out of Chechnya into the town of Nazran in the Republic of Inguishetia in the Russian Federation where Hadji is left at a refugee center. Hadji is befriended by a young Frenchwoman Carole who is documenting the events for the Human Rights Committee of the European Union. Hadji is not speaking at all and Carole doesn’t speak Chechnian but Carole provides for Hadji and develops a supportive relationship with him until she can find out his story and what to do with him. Raissa follows Hadji’s journey to try to reunite with her two brothers. A second story-line follows a 19 year old Russian student Kolia who gets arrested with marijuana and sent into the army to avoid jail. He goes through training and ends up fighting in Chechnya where he is present at Hadji’s family’s town when the Russian troops arrive.
Plot: A woman who works for a non-governmental organization (NGO) forms a special relationship with a young boy in war-torn Chechnya.

Haznavicious comes to terms with history
I totally disagree with “madamebaterflaj” – although this isn’t the “best film ever” (and how could it be, depicting the horror of war), it is not bad at all. Yes, it is anti-Russian, but don’t you remember how the story went? It’s like saying “Schindler’s List is black-and-white anti-German propaganda”…. It is an European point of view, of course, so even if there is a sort of happy end, the focus of the story are not the emotions of the characters, not even the characters maybe, but History and how we all are involved. The boy actor is simply terrific, some times he looks like an old guy, a grown up man, and then again he shows he’s just a little boy. Beautiful photography. Beautiful soundtrack. Might be a bit too long but not that much.
Russians are bad, Chechens are good
Manichaeist movie filmed in the time the first “refugees” (or economical migrants) were starting to come to Europe in millions, the producer smelt the profit. However, you see the trailer, you watched it and saved some tears in the way.
About the movie itself… it’s just 2 personal stories without any link or twist. Slow as hell, all you can expect is when the movie will finish. The small kid Hadji makes a good performance though.
About the director, I’d love to see him and his “chosen people” living in Chechen, surrounded by all these nice guys they are making them flee from such nice cities in the past as Malmö, Rotterdam, Antwerpen or Brussels.
