Thanks for the recommendation. Interesting little movie. Just finished it.

Not heavy hitting. All a bit idealized and adapted for the screen. But the outline follows actual events in general. And the actors and the weapons were fun to watch.

It does come across as a bit historically naive and makes life in Stalin‘s Russia during the war look almost bucolic and charming at times. The brief, inconsequential scene with his brother was the only fleeting nod to the fact that things weren‘t really that relaxed.
