Blatant good vs evil war propaganda film that dehumanizes Ukrainians and tries to justify Russia's annexation of the Crimean peninsula with the confused melodrama between a blue-eyed blond Russian protagonist and his batshit insane love interest. The plot is almost impossible to follow since the character's motivation is very unclear and ambiguous, and will most likely be left unclear to someone who doesn't have at least some basic understanding of the events depicted in this motion picture. The characters have zero chemistry between them, the only emotion they express towards each other is hatred, so it is unclear why they stick together, even after what can only be described as a rape scene, since one of the partisipants is heavily intoxicated during it. The movie is immoral, cringe-worthy and pretty hard to sit through - but what else would one expect from a film made on commission of Russia's ministry of defense?
