As great as a Ballada can get
24 January 2005 | by masyauefaSee all my reviews

This is one of my most favorite movies ever. It's a story of a woman that dresses up as a young man because she wishes to fight against the army of Napoleon, and finds herself in the same squad as the man that she's supposed to marry. The movie is like a one big poem with great lyrics and great music. But what really makes the movie so great is the great acting by the top of the line actors which is partly theatrical but fitting the movie very well. But unfortunately only people who knows the Russian Language can appreciate the movie since it's mostly about the dialogs. I don't think that there is or can be a good translation to any language. But for anyone who knows Russian this movie is a must see if not already an all-time favorite.
