From the beginning, I suspect this will be a tearjerker.
Interesting Russian point of view of WWII.
Simple story with some very emotional moments.
I can't imagine what it was like to be separated so completely from people.
Devastating in parts.
Thoughtful vignettes about separation, isolation, and reunion.
Thoughtful vignettes about separation, isolation, and reunion set in Russia during WWII. Simple story of a young Russian soldier taking leave from battle is full of some very emotional moments. It's difficult not to relate to the young man as he meets fellow soldiers, a potential love interest, and his mother, with often devastating results. The cinematography is nicely done.
