100 Days Before the Command (1991, Armen Dzhigarkhanyan, Vladimir Zamanskiy)



Visually astonishing, erotically charged and emotionally jarring. ‘100 Days Before the Command’ is Hussein Erkenov’s courageous and stinging indictment of communism.

Five young Red Army recruits struggle for survival against the merciless violence that surrounds them on a daily basis. Their only means of saving their dignity is by preserving the humanity and compassion they share for each other.
