This action-packed but thought-provoking war movie might seem familiar in certain senses - the storyline's account of young soldiers thrown into a situation they don't understand, for instance, to fight for a cause they know nothing about. But the difference is that 9th Company is no Hollywood blockbuster, but instead a contemporary Russian movie that deals with the country's ill-fated occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980s, a conflict that has been referred to as "Russia's Vietnam" - and which like that war, has now inspired film-makers to look back and try to learn what went so tragically wrong.
A film revealing the crucial role North African troops played in World War Two and how badly they were treated by France during and after the war.
