Unfortunately this was the only image that I could find to do with the actual movie. There are many other unrelated photos as well as another film with the same name.
The movie was quite disappointing, I wasn’t sure what I was expecting but it wasn’t anything like what I saw. This is my first Russian Movie, and it was nice to see that everyone was speaking Russian but the movie had subtitles (thankfully not dubbed) but the subtitles at the beginning were driving me potty as the text would appear at the top of the screen, then quickly down to the bottom, then bottom then top, bottom, top, top. Really inconsistent and driving me mad as reading is annoying enough when trying to watch a film to have to search for the text all the time.
The movie is about some Russian convicts who manage to escape a prison camp as the German war machine is marching into Russia. The convicts end up in a hamlet so small it’s not listed on any maps but becomes a focus point for a German secret mission squad, as well as the prison camp soldiers hunting them down. Eventually there are a series of showdowns between the Germans and Russians, Russians and convicts, convicts and Germans.
There were some funny bits but also some bizarre and cruel parts. But generally quite a disappointing film as there was a lot of potential in it. I won’t be watching it again, in fact I couldn’t sit still for 2 hours to just only watch that and ended up half doing something else.
