Movie Replay

Earlier this week, I watched a six-part Russian miniseries called НАРКОМОВСКИЙ ОБОЗ, or (in English) Narkomovsky Wagons. Set in 1941, it was about a seasoned Red Army soldier and four greenhorn female Red Army recruits who are ordered to deliver vodka rations (known as the Narkomovsky 100 grams) to the front lines. The trip takes days, and the group overcomes several threats on the way.  You can watch the entire series in one three-hour lump here. (It's entirely in Russian and German, with no English subtitles, but don't worry - the acting is superb and you will have no trouble following the story.)

Anyway, last night I watched the entire movie again, as a dream.
