The student, Bayonet, has managed to seduce his professor's wife, Bomb, an average working guy, has bought a factory and Bullet, the casino lover, is hiding from creditors. They all share a common path and conscription. In the army they teach you that everything must be smart and in order - cockades, straps and all, otherwise you're not fit to call yourself a person, you're a maggot. For a real man, there's no better place than the army. Written by russart.com

"Life without army — it all the same that love in an preservative: movement present, progress isn't." Absurd and comical army history.
3 February 2015 | by redalex-993-233731See all my reviews

This movie is shot in ordinary-unusual style. Yes such it is possible, if the screenwriter is Ivan Okhlobystin, and the director Roman Kachanov Jr. Situations are still absurd, ridiculous and mad. But certainly, they are filled with humour, often black and cynical. It is so refined and so beautiful, without falling to a seamy side, to tell about army and all her pleasures and adversities, perhaps, more at anybody it didn't turn out.

"To madness of the brave we sing the song", as Maxim Gorky told in its poem, and there is a wish to sing simply of all genius of the people working on this picture. Here all is ideal: from the scenario and to camera-work. Okhlobystin issued the scenario in the its unical style again, balancing on a thin side between nonsense and absurdity. Magnificent humour which and "flows" from the main characters. It not simply jokes, but the army life, shown in very hypertrophied form.

The empty army division, UFOs — all this almost dements, doesn't allow to be concentrated on something. One more movie which can't simply be understood mind. Here and there is a wish to use the phrase of the Madman Frankie "Close eyes and look". That is it should be felt soul and to understand reason, to attach the imagination and it will completely be exempted from serious thoughts. After all it is a certain absurd surrealism. No, not such absurdity as at Monty Python, and not that surrealism of Alejandro Jodorowsky. Here all this in absolutely other context. In truly Russian, domestic. In total, it seems, it seems unreal, but in too so native all the time.
