This review is from: Ballad Of A Soldier (Region 2)  [DVD] (DVD)
The start of the film is fairly ridiculous with the protagonist destroying two tanks single handedly but the rest of the film is excellent viewing. The story of a soldier struggling to get back to his home village for a couple of days leave is rivetting and must be an accurate picture of life in Soviet Russia during the great patriotic war.
