The mountain-top locations are stunning; it's like a visit to the moon. And the story has all of the cynicism of war itself.
Once our disbelief gets suspended, a spell is definitely cast.
The outcome of this movie isn't exactly Hollywood material, but it stirs thoughts and feelings that outlast all too many American studio releases.
Simple, powerful, convincing.
A thoughtful and moving film about war.
Lyrical and evocative, Prisoner of the Mountains represents a balanced and telling examination of the absurdity of war.
In its simple aim to show how war is mankind's curse, the film is effective.
A reminder of how revealing it can be to see classic tales through the prism of another culture.
Searing drama about war and ethnic hatred.
Bodrov has created a stirring drama that brings sharp human and physical dimensions to ethnic tensions that have long plagued Russia and its adjacent republics.
A terse, poetic look at the intimacy of war -- when enemies come face to face.
Prisoner of the Mountains can take its place among the better anti-war films.
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.
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.
