R | | Drama, War
Two Russian soldiers, one battle-seasoned and the other barely into his boots and uniform, are taken prisoner by an anxious Islamic father from a remote village hoping to trade them for his captured son.
Dzhemal Sikharulidze, whose character Abdul-Murat abducts the two Russian soldiers, speaks Georgian in the film, not Chechen.
Chechen Squad Leader:
I was sure you would blow to pieces. It's your second birthday.
After Sacha and Vanya escape and remove the shackles from their ankles, they begin running upstream. The scene cuts to a different angle, and they are running downstream.
