The White Sun of the Desert
Russian filmmaker Vladimir Motyl directs the popular action-adventure Beloye Solntse Pustyni (White Sun of the Desert), written by Valentin Yezhov and Rustam Ibragimbekov. During the Russian Civil War, a soldier named Sukhov (Anatoly Kuznetsov) wants to return home to his wife, but is forced to guard a harem belonging to rebel leader Abdulla (Kakhi Kavsadze). Original music was composed by Isaak Shvarts with lyrics by Bulat Okudzhava. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's easy to see how this military adventure has become a cult favorite, with its oddball wit and an elegant simplicity to what was likely underfunded stunt work."
‑ Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
