Synopsis

In 1946, a soldier fathers a child then dies before its birth. Jump to 1952: on a train, the child and his mother meet a handsome soldier who makes a play for her. She accepts. Posing as a married family, the soldier finds them a rooming house where he becomes everyone's favorite through his good looks and generosity. Meanwhile he gives the boy, Sanya, lessons in life: to fight back, to win at all costs. The boy's mother, Katya, is head-over-heels in love with the soldier, but the relationship becomes rocky when his plans for the rooming house become clear.

9/10 for Misha's performance! the movie over all get a 7/10, the story was a little hard to follow because I had to keep pausing to read the subs. I enjoyed the movie as a whole, Misha was a delight. If you like the "Boy yearning for a Father figure" type story, then you'll probably like this if for nothing else, for Misha Philipchuk!
