| Great Film!
As is typical of so many Russian made war films the acting and cinematography is outstanding and the depiction of Russian village life during the war is realistic,

I tend to find the quality of these movies superior to what Hollywood puts out but then films of this nature might not click with the American public. The actors look like real people and the plots lack the melodrama and symbolism of too many American made films in general. Implying sex doesn't seem to be enough in the good old USA either but I think in this film it is handled quite well. We know what they are going to do and have done but rather than the overacted graphic stuff that appears to be required in US films, the act itself is left to the imagination.

The plot centers on a group of three prisoners who escape the Germans during the first year of the German invasion. They hide out in a Russian village and struggle to survive in an area where the Germans are in control and friend or foe among peers is difficult to discern. From the Germans to the Russian village girls all of the actor's depictions are spot on. That's one of the things I love about these films.

Extremely well done and to all involved in the film I say bravo!
