9 rota (9th Company)

A very good russian flick about the final days of the Soviet deployment is Afghanistan, shot in the same vein as Platoon and Full Metal Jacket.

Follows a group of Soviet Troopers from basic training till the end of the war. Good strong characters, high production value, accurately conveys the 'hurry up and wait' reality of deployment, crazy intense battle scenes (as scene here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ThKBe3TiVAE), and hooge variety of East Bloc weapons (pig plus for me).

See it if you can.

Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?
