    Incredible from the cinematography to the music and morally-psychological depth. One of Russia's finest. 6 years 8 months ago

    I had no expectations when i watched this, and I was blown away. A must-see for fans of realistic war-movies that focuses on the psychological aspects on war, not the shootings and explotions. I also recomend "A Man Escaped" wich reminded me much about this movie: slow-paced and beautiful. 8 years 8 months ago
