Did You Know?


The filming was very hard for Aleksey Poluyan who suffered from severe pancreatitis. Besides, he had hysterics after the scene where Zhurov raped Anzhelika was filmed. Nevertheless, according to Poluyan, the crew "took great care of him, wouldn't allow him anything, wouldn't let him go anywhere, like a bird in a golden cage." At first they even wanted to use CGI for the motorcycle scenes out of fear that he wouldn't stand them but changed their minds. Poluyan had no previous experience of driving whatsoever but they taught him in two hours. See more »

An odd trip
22 June 2009 | by LazySodSee all my reviews

The title of the film is a code name for the return home of a body from the battle field. The reason why this title is chosen becomes clear early in the film - but the build of the film would allow a lot of different titles and each one of them would be matching for this film goes far beyond a body returning from the battle field. As the story rolls the film switches back and forth between a number of people and tells their respective tales - and the way all of them connect in one way or the other. The stories are not altogether happy but are not too dark either so the film doesn't turn too dreary. It is very grim though. As each of the stories turns to its conclusion one can not escape the biting cold reality of them.

Played out well enough to be believable and quick enough to be entertaining this film does pretty well. It's ending is fitting, its after-taste is bitter. But, above all, it's an interesting watch.
