The beauty of this movie is that you, as the reader of the subtitles, are the only one who knows what is going on. The woman and the two men all speak different languages. It is a comedy of errors up until the end.

A Russian platoon sweeps a village, avoiding two mishaps. At a remote check-post they play cards with bullets as stakes. A village girl pimps her deaf-mute sister for bullets. A shifty enemy sniper keeps strafing, causing a tragedy.
First of all I was all in desire to watch this film only for one actual reason - this reason has the name - Daniil Strakhov. I have never seen him in the full screen picture so that was interesting, but when I saw it I have found out that this is a very good work - in general this film makes a very good impression from the point of the view on the history of the Soviet Union.......not in general meaning but on some specific aspects - political question was revealed very well. I loved the stories - a lot of personal stories told in the film. There was no main hero and everyone was important to the plot. Couple of words about the plot of the film: the story starts in the North of Russia - near the border with Alyaska in early 1940s.....where American pilots transit planes to the Soviet pilots to combat Germans....... Everything else is to be seen by your own eyes and heard by your own ears.
