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.
Did you shoot?
Ivan Zhilin: Did not get a chance.
Sacha Kostylin: What is your name, again?
Ivan Zhilin: Private Gilin.
Sacha Kostylin: You are a rotten soldier, Private Gilin.
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.
