War is wasteful, somewhat futile and extremely destructive. Occasionally necessary. The Russian Army is financially and philosophically bankrupt. Does anyone not know any of this? If so, watch this film and learn. If not, don't. Yeah, War is wasteful, somewhat futile and extremely destructive. Occasionally necessary. The Russian Army is financially and philosophically bankrupt. Does anyone not know any of this? If so, watch this film and learn. If not, don't. Yeah, yeah, I know... it's a metaphor for the torpor of Russian history and its tortured soul. The lead, cellist Mistislav Rostropovish's wife, is wonderful. And I'm an ardent fan of slowly-paced, earthy portrayals of this sort. Stil, I couldn't stand to watch more than 60 minutes of this 90-minute film. Have seen it all before, umpteen times, though perhaps not staged as if it occurs in Chechnya. Expand
