Trivia

While the film won the MTV Movie Awards, Russia for 2007, the famous director Vladimir Menshov refused to hand over the award. Vladimir Menshov gasped as he read the contents of the envelope, looked up and said: "I'm not going to hand over an award to a film that discredits country, let Pamela Anderson (another of the evening's presenters) do it instead". He then turned, dropped the envelope and stalked offstage, refusing to comment further. MTV Russia broadcast the ceremony live. See more »

Good Russian war movie
13 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

Recently I have noticed that the Russians began to make very good movies – and Svolochi is for sure one of them. The action is really moving – while the viewer has a choice - to sympathize with the young criminals who seemed doomed to die or to look at them from a different perspective. Some of the boys were caught for committing crimes such as murders and they were given a chance between death and training in a military preparing them for risky missions behind the enemy lines. The movie does not do very good on the realistic scale but still seeing it is worth it as it has some quite emotional moments and the acting was pretty decent.
