Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 01/31/1997
"The setting is exotic and beautiful....Directed by Mr. Bodrov with both an oddly tranquil spirit and the awareness of a tightening noose..."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/07/1997
"...Poignant....It's the beautifully captured images of the region's still, unchanging beauty that will stay with you longest from this haunting film..."
Los Angeles Times - 02/07/2001
"...Simple, powerful, convincing....A spare, poetic tale of the traps of conflict and fate..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 02/07/1997
"...A thoughtful and moving film about war....The movie has an acute sense of place and the passage of time..."

Product Description:

When an oddball pair of Russian soldiers are captured and taken prisoner by a Chechen father hoping to barter them for the release of his captive son, the two disparate hostages begin to develop an unexpected--and frequently humorous--bond of friendship. Inspired by the Leo Tolstoy novella "A Prisoner of the Caucasus." Academy Award Nomination: Best Foreign Language Film.
