Quite bad, actually
1 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though the plot deals with a very powerful story, it manages to turn it into a cliché of good versus evil. No human component was there. Only villainous foot-soldiers taking pleasure from tormenting docile and good-hearted victims. The movie is simplistic to the point of mocking the tragic story by turning it into a caricature. It contends with many cold-war propaganda B-movies. OK to watch if you're into brainless depictions of good versus evil stories, but otherwise very poor. Even though the characters were pretty shallow, the acting was generally good. The lack of soundtrack also added to accentuating some of the scenes. The mention of awards though is honestly surprising.
