Tony Chiu Wai Leung,
Jewish brothers in Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe escape into the Belarussian forests, where they join Russian resistance fighters and endeavor to build a village in order to protect themselves and about 1,000 Jewish non-combatants.
The film is based on a true story of the 9th company during the Soviet invasion in Afghanistan in the 1980's. Young Soviet Army recruits are sent from a boot camp into the middle of the war in Afghanistan. The action is not like a boot camp at all. It is very bloody and dirty. The 9th company is defending the hill 3234. They are hopelessly calling for help. Written by
I am big fan of war films, specially from Vietnam and WWII. Afghanistan was taboo in Russia for long time, therefore I was very impatient to see 9th company and because of Bondarchuk, that is the name.
I was really surprised about this film. Perfect acting, spectacular special effects, costumes and different point of view on war. All of these made this film superlative. And something more. I felt something strange after the end of this film. It was mix of feelings like anger, sympathy and sorrow.
9th company is impressive successor of famous Russian war films and Fyodor is brilliant follower of his father Sergey. Is nice to see excellent masterpiece from different, like American production.
God bless Bondarchuk !
