Trivia

Near the beginning, president Saakashvili can be seen munching on his necktie. This was based on an actual incident, in which the president was caught on camera while chewing on his tie, unaware that the camera was rolling. The footage has been widely translated, and can be easily found on YouTube. See more »

A piece of history needed to be seen.
6 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

This film is not a Hollywood portrayal of this war with the purpose of demeaning Russia and exalting Georgia. It is a meaningful story of the plight of Georgia to be independent and free of any dictatorship of any kind. Renney's directorship is brilliant in that he does not color it to be pro-anyone. The history of Georgia and Russia and all of the events leading up to this war would be more than one screenplay could cover. Georgia's fight is heartwarming for it is always great to see 'the little guy put up a good fight'!! Val Kilmer and Andy Garcia are as good as they get. There is the role of the Georgian officer played by an American actor, Johnathon Schaech, who does a fantastic job of portraying a man who leads his men victoriously. Schaech shocks you a bit when he actually speaks Georgian and from what I understand does it extremely well. A film worth your $$ and time.
