Overall, this movie shows a different view of the Soviet Afghan war, on a more personal level than we normally see from foreign war films. The quality is not always the best, but the point of the movie gets across, and emphasizes the soldiers' helplessness and inability to escape a war they did not start. The movie is based off true events, so the sometimes ridiculous parts of the film show realistic pieces of the experience of a Soviet soldier from start to finish.
While it is not the best foreign film I've seen, I would recommend it to people who enjoy war films, the russian language, or those who are interested in the lesser known views of wars.
Thanks for reading! Come back for more reviews soon!
