This film is a gem, in the genre of "war creates orphan" stories.
I first viewed this picture back in the late 1980's and saw it a couple times, but not since then. Nevertheless, despite 16 years passing (or fleeting) by, I still remember this powerful story as if it were yesterday.
We feel the bleakness of winter, the homelessness of a youngster, and the overall impact that a long war can have on even the most defenseless of a nation.
It would be nice to see more great Russian films released on DVD here in Europe or in the western world.
