A tightly executed moral drama of love and war, Sergei Bodrov's Academy Award-nominated film is based on Tolstoy's classic tale and set in the remote, austerely beautiful Caucasus mountains. Sacha, the dashing soldier (Russian heartthrob Oleg Menshikov, Burnt by the Sun), and the young recruit Vania (Sergei Bodrov, Jr.) are captured by a Chechen father who holds them hostage in his village home. The father attempts a prisoner exchange for his son, who is held by the Russian army, but is defeated by lackadaisical and inept bureaucracy of the military. As the two Russians await their fate, a love gradually develops between Vania and their captor's daughter. Russian with English subtitles.
