Storyline

After several months of fierce fighting, the Red Army finally knocks the enemy out of the village of Ovsyannikovo, which costs huge losses - only a third of the personnel remain from the company. Exhausted to the limit, the soldiers are waiting for reinforcements, but an order comes from the headquarters - to keep the village at all costs, and this is tantamount to a death sentence. The company commander faces a difficult choice - either to lose the remnants of the company, following a meaningless command order, or to withdraw his people from mortar fire, but at the same time leave their positions and go to the tribunal for violating the order. In extremely realistic details, only one fierce battle is shown, in which, like in a drop of water, the whole truth about the war is reflected. Written by Bernardo74

Controversial film
19 July 2020 | by eva3si0nSee all my reviews

Rzhev controversial film. It was removed in Russia, after the shackles of communism, therefore, everything is represented here so that communism is an absolute evil. The film was clearly shot with Kremlin money. Therefore, as they say, "Whoever pays, he orders music." But against the backdrop of all this, one thing can be said - this is one of the most technically beautiful films about the war shot in Russia in recent years. Where the main place in the plot is occupied by war, and not something else. There's no Hollywood scope, no pseudo-patriotism. But all the horrors of the war that the Russian people went through are shown. And this is the main thing.
