Why do I want to see this movie?

I am not much of a movie watcher. But for some perverse reason I want to see The 9th Company.

I say perverse, because I am not sure that I could watch the movie all the way through. Besides, it is a foreign langue film and I don’t really go for sub titles. But the trailer really grabbed my attention and I can’t stop thinking about it.

I think that one of the reasons that the trailer grabbed my attention was that for me reading about the Russian war in Afghanistan was a very emotional experience. No other war I have ever read about disturbed me in quite the same way and I have read about a number of nasty wars.

So I think that a large part of this trailer’s appeal for me is that it perfectly taps into the feelings generated by my reading about the Russian experiences in Afghanistan.

But even removing my emotions from it, I think that it was a very well done trailer. But perhaps I am just revealing my poor tastes.

The clip below was also taken from the movie. It makes me think that the movie was very well directed. The clip just seems like it was perfectly done. But again, what do I know?
