What immediately caught my attention was the physical features of the father Georgy, portrayed by the actor Zakariadze. His mustache is quite queer but it also became part of his over-all charm. The attitude is also heartwarming to know, he has deep concern for his son and went to great lengths just to ensure that the son is well despite being in battle. There are various war scenes and production design was achieved quite well. But it's the emotions that will stick to the viewers. Engrossing film to watch!
