Utter crap
24 August 2019 | by harryplinkett14See all my reviews

Apparently, Russian soldiers in Afghanistan were either criminals, idiots, lunatics, traitors, or all of the above. None of them had any genuine desire to do good, like build infrastructure, for instance, something this film never has time to acknowledge. None of them were patriots who fought bravely. None of them performed their duties professionally. None of them deserve to be called heroes. When veterans protested the film during a screening at which the director was present, he defended himself, saying he did not intend to insult 'their' fatherland. The choice of words was more than revealing. For him, it was not 'his' fatherland, but 'theirs'. And this alien country did nothing right, just as her sons that fought and died in Afghanistan did nothing right. That's what this nasty film director would have us believe, that is.
