Audience Reviews for Prisoner of the Mountains (Kavkazskiy Plennik)

    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.
