9th Company

We're going to break from the cerebral cogitations of Tarkovsky and classic Soviet cinema this week and watch a 2005 box office blockbuster called 9th Company (9 Рота), which tells the story of a company of Soviet soldiers fighting in Afghanistan during the USSR's ill-fated invasion of that graveyard of empires in 1979 (which led Jimmy Carter to boycott the 1980 Olympics). 

 

In Russian with English subtitles.
