The outcome of this movie isn't exactly Hollywood material, but it stirs thoughts and feelings that outlast all too many American studio releases.

Audience Reviews for Prisoner of the Mountains (Kavkazskiy Plennik)
It takes a Russian touch to make a film about war that shows compassion, brutality, hope and hopelessness, and does so with only 3 minutes of battle scenes. This movie has a deliberate pace, which makes you appreciate the film while you are thinking about what is happening. The story line is solid, and never is it unbelievable. The cinematography is beautiful. The acting well done. Nice movie.
A well deserving Best Foreign Picture Oscar winner back in 1997. Not too many pictures depicted the uprisings in Chechnya of the period and this does so well from a very personal perspective.
I liked this movie, although it is not one I would watch over and over again. So many things went wrong, if and only if ... things would have turned out better. Loved the cast. So sad that the actor Sergei Bodrov, Jr. died in real life, he was such a good actor in this and in the other movies I saw him in.
