    Afghanistan through the eyes of Russian soldiers


    I found this movie to be astonishing. I've read many books and maps of the Soviet conquest of Afghanistan, and this movie does a great job of illustrating their struggle. Just when you might think we (USA) have had it tough in Afghanistan you can see that the Soviets' debacle. This apparently attempts to tell the tale of a Soviet Spetznaz (Soldiers with a special service) holding a hill during the Afghan conflict. Much of this movie tries to bring that conflict to light, but leaves out much of the actual "true" conflict according to said documentation; However, the movie does a great job of showing the world what little suport that their conscript Army had to fight an impossible war. No matter which military you serve under, we're all brothers / sisters in arms.

    Russian film that is short of a Hollywood B-movie.

    It has an awkward storyline, in terms of the characters. It's chaotic and has bad acting. It appears to be a kind of modern propaganda film with some gratuitous nudity. It's clearly meant for adult males who have had a few beers to drink (forewarning).

    Russia's Full Metal Jacket


    Same basic story as Full Metal Jacket but it's the Soviet Army and Afghanistan (but not as well done). Gives you a different take about the current warfare there. The English dubbing is pretty bad, it's better to watch in Russian with the subtiles.

    Shows the Russian experience in Afghanistan. Really great action scenes and must see for background on current war in Afghanistan.
