Prisoner of the Mountains

1996 Rated R 1hr 39m

When an oddball pair of Russian soldiers are captured and taken prisoner by a Chechen father who hopes to barter the soldiers for the release of his captive son, the two hostages begin to develop an unexpected -- and humorous -- bond of friendship. This film, which is directed and co-written by Sergei Bodrov, was inspired by the Leo Tolstoy novella A Prisoner of the Caucasus. Oleg Menchikov stars as Sacha and Sergei Bodrov Jr. as Vanya.
