The beauty of this movie is that you, as the reader of the subtitles, are the only one who knows what is going on. The woman and the two men all speak different languages. It is a comedy of errors up until the end.

A squad of Soldiers find themselves in hot water and are sent to guard a checkpoint in remote bushland, where tensions are high with the locals. A snipper from the bushes keeps them on their toes, rattling their nerves daily. But with every occupational hazard comes insanity. The only way to survive is to be part of the madness and that they do, each soldier with their own eccentricity. The story never builds up to anything but shows the slow progression of their deterioration. And there is also too much of that boys-own-jokes that gets in the way of the inner demons that is creeping up on them all. Director Alexander Rogozhkin did better in LIFE WITH AN IDIOT (1993).
