Watched this on Film4 tonight and I must say I was thorougly impressed with this film, so much infact that I looked for any deals for this dvd. HMV is the cheapest found at £3.99.
Film is in russian with english subtitles (Don't let this put you off!)
See IMDB for movie info - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0417397
Excellent deal if you are into your war films.
"Review : They stood together while their country fell apart Post-communist Russia's highest grossing film to date 9TH COMPANY is a stirring and extremely timely modern day war movie on a par with Hollywood blockbusters 'Full Metal Jacket' and 'Platoon'. Based on real life events 9th Company recounts a year in the shared loves of a group of young Soviet soldiers recruited to serve in Afghanistan for the final year of the Soviet conflict. It is the poignant story of the unit's dedication to both their country and each other during their final valiant defence of the Height 3234... a futile battle that ravaged the forgotten company who fought on unaware the war had ended"
