A must-see!, 4 February 2010
A highly emotional, deeply moving and beautifully told story of one of
the greatest tragedies of the 20th century. It absolutely cannot leave
you indifferent. While it depicts horrific events during the siege of
Leningrad it manages to keep a shred of hope and faith (in human nature
first and foremost) by creating these most humane and touching
characters. The acting is incredible, very subtle and no small details
are left untouched. The battle scene is so graphic that you find
yourself overwhelmed and completely immersed in the utter nightmare and
horror of it. All in all it is powerful work that deserves to be seen.
Over and over.
