Storyline

It is August 1941. With the battle line far away in the east, three soldiers who have managed to escape from captivity find it difficult to hide: the territory is occupied by the enemy. The local woods are not safe: you can easily get embogged. Are the villagers loyal? Nobody can say. There is an old man who offers to help them. Is he reliable enough? He may kill them or report them to the local German authorities. Anything may happen, but one of them, the sniper, is his son who is his youngest, his dearest. Written by Mark Gubarenko

Great Film!
25 March 2018 | by mchenrykrmSee all my reviews

As is typical of so many Russian made war films the acting and cinematography is outstanding and the depiction of Russian village life during the war is realistic,

I tend to find the quality of these movies superior to what Hollywood puts out but then films of this nature might not click with the American public. The actors look like real people and the plots lack the melodrama and symbolism of too many American made films in general. Implying sex doesn't seem to be enough in the good old USA either but I think in this film it is handled quite well. We know what they are going to do and have done but rather than the overacted graphic stuff that appears to be required in US films, the act itself is left to the imagination.

The plot centers on a group of three prisoners who escape the Germans during the first year of the German invasion. They hide out in a Russian village and struggle to survive in an area where the Germans are in control and friend or foe among peers is difficult to discern. From the Germans to the Russian village girls all of the actor's depictions are spot on. That's one of the things I love about these films.

Extremely well done and to all involved in the film I say bravo!
