It is August 1941. With the battle line far away in the east, three soldiers who have managed to escape from captivity find it difficult to hide: the territory is occupied by the enemy. The local woods are not safe: you can easily get embogged. Are the villagers loyal? Nobody can say. There is an old man who offers to help them. Is he reliable enough? He may kill them or report them to the local German authorities. Anything may happen, but one of them, the sniper, is his son who is his youngest, his dearest. Written by
There is no war like one fighting on your land. When everything you know or hold dear is in danger, the loved ones, your home, the graves of the dearly departed. " Our Own" is a hard, uncompromising look at the Second World War, without embellishments of ideology, just sharp, focused description of the horrors and people who either live them or create them, or sometimes both. In the early days, in the summer of 1941, three soldiers escape from Germans and hide in the near by village, the home of one of them. There is no glory nor propaganda in this tale, just blood, guts and tears. And fear, thick and smelly,that eats the soul and dirties everything it touches. And it touches one and all, without mercy. Great movie.
