"13.1. (PC/Yle Areena) Toveruus näkyy sosialismin luvatussa maassa lähinnä sanoina, todellinen apu saavutetaan hyödyn tai syyllistämisen kautta. Myös inhimillisyys on unohtunut sotakoneiston pauhatessa, henkilöistä tulee yksilön sijaan lihamyllyn osia tai pikemminkin muuleja, jotka pelkäävät kepin iskua jokaisesta itsenäisesti tehdystä tunteellisesta päätöksestä. Visuaalisesti huikean elokuvan rakkaustarina on koskettava, mutta lopun kertojaäänen paksutussisen alleviivauksen "

This film isn't one of these action bumped war"
