Synopsis:
Acclaimed director Alexander Sokurov's beautiful new film explores the enclosed all-male environment of a Russian troop regiment in war-torn Chechnya. In the oppressive heat of a remote military outpost, an old woman (legendary Russian opera star Galina Vishnevskaya) arrives in search of her twenty-seven-year-old grandson, whom she has not seen in seven years. What she discovers is a world devoid of warmth or comfort and with a constant undercurrent of violence, in which questions of life and death are decided every hour of every day.

Gave up half way through. - Alexandra review by RP

Spoiler Alert

Unfortunately the sub titles did not really convey the emotions.

Found it hard to believe that the Soviet military would accept a 'grandma' turning up in a war zone and staying in camp.

Maybe should have persevered.
