On a deserted island, where the russian air force does his target practice'ing...
29 January 2003 | by aavikSee all my reviews

It is a very very good movie about the times of the soviet empire and of what was going on behind the iron curtain. Although my uncle Evald Aavik was starring in the movie it would not have made it worse in my eyes if he didn't. The movie itselt and my uncle won al lot of prizes. And without a doubt - they were worth it! ;)
