The story of the film is pretty simple, as are the events of the soldier going back to see his mother. The film does a great job at portraying Soviet life before and during the war. The love story between the soldier, his mother and newfound love are pretty cute. Like the synopsis of reads, the dirty deeds the soldier gets involved with make you think, "What?" Overall, this is one of my favorite Russian films, even though it got repetitive and moved in and out of austere scenes too quickly.
