| Soviet border outpost in Tagikistan is under siege by Islamic fundamentalists and civilians are caught in between
Tihaya Zastava is a movie that didn't leave me with a feeling of wasted time as most other movies i watched recently did. It's worth watching, especially taking into consideration the current war against terror and rise of Islamic fundamentalism. Plot is based in just after the breakup of Soviet Union, in 1993. in ex-USSR , now part of Russian Federation, republic of Tagikistan, on the border with Afganistan. Small border outpost is under attack by local bandits which are trying to present themselves as Islamic holy warriors, while their true objective is terrorizing local population and kidnapping women. This story is based on real events, yet had played many times over in the world. It does a good job of portraying the roots of current tensions in the region. It could as well play out in Checniya, Pakistan, Afganistan... Replace Russian soldiers with Americans or any local army and viola! There's even mentioning of training camps for jihadists in northern Pakistan. Story is pretty much black and white, acting not at it's highest, there's plenty stereotypes, some scenes remind of WW2 era soviet movies. Still, it's worth watching for it's educational purpose. Production is good, camera too. Plenty attention had been paid to details, uniforms, guns, vehicles are all period and location correct.
