User Reviews

A really great story about misdeeds, revenge and the consequences.
23 January 2009 | by taw09See all my reviews

People tend to think that a small country can't be good at things that the great ones are good at. (Like some say that only Hollywood can produce great movies.) That't probably because they put money ahead of everything else. It's a long ago proved fact, that Europe has a lot more potential to make deep thought provoking movies than Hollywood. And "even" Eastern-Europe countries are able to use that potential in full power. Especially when they cooperate with other European movie companies. And from that cooperation the movie "Vasha" was born. (Vasha should mean "brother" in chechen language, so the movie title already speaks some about the strong issues dealt in the plot.) This movie achieves its greatness with the ability to make the audience think farther than the things you see on the screen. This movie is a must-see for every single person that has suffered from the crimes that were (and still are) committed by Russia (former Soviet Union) towards its small neighboring nations.
