[img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/movie/coverv/32/242232.jpg[/img] Nominated for the 1972 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, Russian director Stanislav Rostotski's epic WWII film is considered by many to be one of the best war movies ever made. Focusing on the little-known percentage of women who made up a small part of the Soviet army, DAWNS HERE ARE QUIET follows a small detachment of female soldiers, taking us into their private lives and following them into battle. The ensemble cast engages in combat with a German regiment attempting to surprise the Soviets, while the fighting sequences are interspersed with the women's recollections of family and civilian life back home. The women's daily existence turns out to provide a fascinating deviation from traditional war movies, as they attempt to navigate the additional difficulties brought on by their gender within a predominantly male milieu; this includes kicking their sergeant out of the barracks when he complains about their clothing. Ultimately the film illuminates the women's bravery and heroism in the face of strife and the misery of war. [b]These movie is on a 2 disk dvd set. The first half is overly sentimental and a bit sappy, as they show each of the girls' lives before the war. During flashback scenes they're often making googoo eyes at their beloved hubby or bf. Part 2 on the second dvd, you see the girls as they confront their nazi enemies face to face, & is a lot more interesting. These are very young women engaged in real battle, as young as 17 yrs old. I can't remember a movie where they portray the women's bravery in battle like this one. If for no other reason, its a good historical reminder of the importance of Russian women's role during WWII.[/b]
