Storyline

A Russian soldier who spent ten years in captivity in Afghanistan, returns to his home village and shocks all its inhabitants because of his conversion to Islam. During his absence, his father hanged himself, his brother served a prison term and his former fiancée has become a woman of very low morals. The village is the scene of endless drinking while the local boss is selling off the land for dollars to new-rich Russians. Our hero turns out as the only sober and hard-working member of the community. However, his attachment to his new faith soon provokes the hatred and rejection of everyone else, including his own family. Written by Maywin Media AB <maywin@mbox200.swipnet.se>

The Best Movie Ever Made
24 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

I have seen a lot of movies, both Russian and American, and very few movies left a lasting impression on my heart, but even those movies were not as touching as the movie "Musulmanin" or "Muslim". This movie is a truly amazing work of art, and it definitely deserves more than one Oscar. The actors, especially Evgeniy Mironov who played the main character Kolya Ivanov, went above and beyond to make this movie unforgettable and incomparable. This movie should have won the Academy Award for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Directing. Evgeniy Mironov should have won the Academy Award for Best Actor. I even want to say that the way Evgeniy Mironov portrays the life of a Muslim in an impoverished Russian village deserves more than one Oscar. I think the actor understood his character so well that they became one. This doesn't happen often in the world of cinematography. I have never seen a better actor performance than Evgeniy Mironov in the movie "Musulmanin". I think this movie should be shown in all large movie theaters of the world. More people should see the real beauty of art and the best movie ever made. I hope not to hurt anybody's feelings if I say that this movie left a deeper impression in my mind than the movie "Titanic" and other movies that won Oscars. What makes this movie an unforgettable work of art? - The best actor performance and the sadness in the eyes of the main character Kolya Ivanov played by wonderful Evgeniy Mironov, who is an absolutely beautiful person from inside and outside.
