Three Comrades

A former Muscovite now working in the Netherlands, Masha Novikova has made a stinging indictment of war with this 2006 portrait of three young men whose lives were torn apart during Chechnya's struggle for independence in the 1990s. The men witnessed Grozny being decimated by Russian bombers and tanks, and one of the trio, a seasoned TV journalist, shot battle footage that's used in this documentary. The only survivor of the three, a surgeon who treated people on both sides of the conflict, now lives in exile, having eluded imprisonment in Russia. This is a heartbreaking look at the barbarity of ethnic cleansing and the carnage wrought by opportunistic politicians. In Russian and Chechen with subtitles. 99 min.
