What’s an old Russian lady doing taking a train with soldiers and riding in a dusty armored car in the middle of nowhere? Visiting her army officer grandson, in Alexander Sokurov’s sly, ultimately very moving antiwar drama, which stars one-time opera diva Galina Vishnevskaya as the babushka, bivouacking in a tent on the front lines in the Caucasus and befriending the local women at the market. She doesn’t like the smell of the inside of a tank -- well, who does? Written and directed with his usual ostentatious restraint by Sokurov (Russian Ark, Mother and Son), who for some reason employs two music tracks playing simultaneously (92 min.).
