Storyline

The story is about a young single mother who is compelled to make her way at risk of her life to Ckhinvali, where her son is, whom she had sent there on the eve of the conflict. The film can be divided into two parts that alternate one with the other: one shows how in the eyes of a young boy the South Ossetian conflict transforms into a fantastic war story with super-robots, and the second shows the reality of the war situation and the journey of the main heroine.

Trivia

The planned Ukrainian premiere of 1st March 2012 was disrupted because the Ukrainian Ministry of Culture had not issued a certificate of the film on time. The Ukrainian media wrote that the Ministry had banned the movie, but ultimately the premiere took place on March 15th, but in a very limited release - 44 screens - which had a very negative impact on its box office figures.

The movie is good at making you feel
15 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of course this movie is a propaganda, but a very good one. That's how propaganda movies should be made! The movie is not about the message that is shouted in your face, but rather about how it makes you feel - at the right time, for the right reason, with the right character. I liked pretty much everything about this movie - the script, the dialogs, character development, action scenes. I've read some concerns about main girl character who's acting did not seem to be convincing early in the movie, but I think it was done on purpose, as a contrast, to show that behind urban glamour still hides Russian Woman that was praised in the world art and literature. Thus dedication of the movie to the mothers. Bottom line is: at last we see some nice action drama coming from Russia that we would not be ashamed of. Highly recommend.
