Post-communist Russia’s highest grossing film to date, 9th COMPANY is a stirring and extremely timely modern day war movie on a par with Hollywood blockbusters ,Full Metal Jacket, and and ,Platoon,.
In 1988, a band of 39 Soviet soldiers held ,Hill 3234, against 400 Afghan rebels in a remarkable chapter in military history.
Based on real events, the film follows ill-fated fortunes of a small group of young Russian soldiers, from the trials of boot camp to their arrival in the heart of the war zone and the climactic, bloody battle that made them all heroes.
