At the end of the Cold War, the renowned Alexandrov Red Army Ensemble of Russia performed with Finland's outrageous rock n' rollers the Leningrad Cowboys. The event drew 70,000 people and involved two nations that were at war a half century ago. Acclaimed filmmaker Aki Kaurismaki effectively captures the glorious, hilarious, and poignant splendor of that weird and wild performance in this one-of-a-kind concert movie. What seems an impossible combination of musical styles and tastes becomes a sublime cosmic experience, especially when the Red Army musicians pick up their traditional balalaikas to join the Cowboys on Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door". "The most inspired cross-cultural pairing since Nureyev danced with Miss Piggy" (Variety).
