Blokpost is a film about the madness of war. Somewhere in the Caucasus, which looks like Chechnya, a dirty war is raging. There are no battlefields as such, but every peasant is either a suspect or a victim. During a raid on a village, young Russian soldiers are unable to prevent the death of a child, killed by a land mine. The child's mother shoots the village policeman in her grief and is shot herself by the panicking soldiers, who are posted to a remote check point for thirty days as a punishment. Although they don't actually see the enemy in the darkness of the forest, they hear the intermittent snipers and imagine its presence behind every tree. The film, which is shot in quasi-documentary style, aims at displaying the madness of war in which everyone suffers, including the soldiers. Blokpost was screened as part of the Panorama section of the 49th International Berlin Film Festival, 1999. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, Rovi
