An unfulfilled sergeant, is during WW2, leading a small Soviet anti aircraft outpost with only women soldiers under his command. German special forces are spottet in the woods and the sergeant with five of his women, set out to stop the Nazis, before they reach their mission goal! During all this, there are memory recaps, showing the band of six's earlier story and how they got to be where they are!Written by
Inside Fedot Vaskov 's home/office, a horseshoe is nailed above the door. It keeps changing. Sometimes the open ends point up, sometimes down. For good luck, they should always point up to capture the luck. See more »
Very good remake of old classic Soviet film. This is very humane and shows women drawn into war, who just want to live normal lives. You fell the horrors of war on a personal level and so the war feels even more horrible than in the big action movies, with large mass scenes and special effects. Here there are just women trying to fight for their country and survive. Very beautiful actresses.
