Perhaps there are few people who have not heard about the tragic events in South Ossetia, not only in Russia but also worldwide. Nowadays, more and more seem to be wild things ... the war, murder not only soldiers in the war, but also the mass extermination of civilians. But nowadays, it would seem "civilized" time is not stopped, and in politics, and in civilian life.
In August 2008, Georgian troops (not themselves) invaded South Ossetia to restore "constitutional order" according to the Georgian media, according to some Western media TV and radio broadcasting - the Russian Federation together with Ossetian forces invaded democratic independent Georgia were ... and other "treatments".

In the film, no pathos "inflated" heroes, some heroic embellished, all taken seriously, the more you know what it was and it was in our time, most recently, not far from us.
With regard to the re-created an atmosphere of chaos, fire, explosions
I think criticism should not be, it looks really, especially if you
try to feel the situation and be aware of everything that happens.
In the course of one and a half hours we will see not everything - but what shall see enough to form an idea of the known events that many of us only hear through news and interviews.
It would be very nice if the film was shown in the US, Europe and. .. Georgia, but at the moment - I think it's unattainable dream, an information war is really the most effective of them all, and let it be luck to those who on the right side ...
