Odna Voyna Although quite different, this superb film comes from the same Russian producer and director team that brought us last year's closing premiere 'Two Women'. May, 8, 1945. Maxim Prokhorov, Major of the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs, arrives at a small northern island. There live eleven people: five young women, five children from one to three years, and the captain Karp Nichiporuk. The young mothers were exiled to the island from the territories occupied by fascists, and their children are the children of the German occupier. The arrival of the Major upsets the casual life on the island. He has to "clean up" the island and nearest settlements, so authorizes a plan to organize a training camp in the region for saboteurs. On the night of May 9, the women are told about the German capitulation, their hopes for forgiveness and return home become a certainty. They are even allowed to celebrate the Victory.
