[A] gentle, often funny, always very human film about loneliness and unexpected companionship...

A gently funny mini-epic whose 'make love not war' message is delivered in three languages at once.

Juuso, who made her film debut at 22 in this movie, is spunky and funny. The two guys play off each other like bickering old pals.

Gives us something to think about: How much of what we consider civilization -- intellectual pursuit, politics, nationalism -- relies on language?

Anni is a feisty little thing and you can't help but root for her when she challenges these two burly soldiers and gets out of the relationship exactly what she wants.

Writer/director Alexander Rogozhkin has a way of lapsing into cuteness when the story calls for something more challenging, but The Cuckoo eventually finds its own kind of light, ridiculous tone that generally doesn't talk down to the characters.

A bit overextended for its very simple story...but for the most part this is a charming, curiously touching picture.

A pretty good film -- a dark comedy rigorously observed -- until Rogozhkin reveals himself to be just another New Age softie.

A consistently hilarious collision of cultures and a string of misunderstandings.

Rogozhkin's unusual film has the audacity to consider those which uplift the human spirit, as well as those that erode it.

A strange and challenging film that questions a world in which human beings can be so easily defined by the uniform they wear.
