5.0 out of 5 stars Moving, Touching, 9 Aug. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prisoner of the Mountains [DVD] [1998] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Whilst most war films highlight the violence, destruction and senseless brutality of conflict Prisoner of the mountains chooses to focus on the relationships between the characters thrown together by Russias conflict with Chechnya. Protagonist Vanya is a conscript who has no time to find his feet before he is captured by the enemy along with hardened veteran Sasha. Vanyas naievity and innocence contrasts with Sashas toughness and as a result leads him to form a friendship with the daughter of his captor Abdul whose intention is to use the captives as a bargaining chip to secure the release of his own son held by the Russians in a nearby town, garrisoned by an apathetic conscript force and led by an equally jaded commander.If you are excpecting an action packed film Prisoner of the mountains will disappoint you, however if you wish to watch a fantastic, moving and touching film set amongst breathtaking scenery it may well become like me your favourite film.
