Bi-polar war hero
28 August 2018 | by SendiTolverSee all my reviews

This is not the greatest war movie, but it is the best Estonian language war movie because of interesting actors, anti war message, cinematography, lack of pathos and minimal amount of propaganda. Made in the Soviet era Estonia, the film tells the story of Estonian Rifle Corps in Soviet Red Army, but the film amazingly manages to stay away being pure propaganda piece. There are few propagandistic undertones, but they are so brief that they never overshadow the humane part of the story. There are no spectacular battle scenes, but more the time to show the transformation of Enn Kalm (Rudolf Allabert) from reluctant soldier to loyal fighter.

Minimalist, yet powerful movie about the meaning of the war.
