Russian small-unit action in the closing days of WW2
I couldn't find English subtitles for this but I did find a version
with Spanish subtitles, my Spanish is not bad so I was able to follow
it quite well. This is a film about a small Russian unit left to guard
a bridge, in 1944, in Occupied Poland, while the main attack goes on
elsewhere. The unit becomes preoccupied with the fate of a group of
children who are being hidden from the Germans by nuns from the Nunnery
next door. There's not really any plot to speak of. I found myself
getting very annoyed at one stupid girl who wanders around calling for
her brother and having to be rescued by the Russians. It got to the
point where I wanted the Russians to shoot her to avoid losing men due
to her stupidity. There was not a lot of action but what there is, is
reasonably realistic. Characters are well defined, direction seemed OK
and the cinematography, also OK.
