International Critics Prize Best Film

In this extraordinary human drama set against the Russian Civil War, a tough Red Army Commander's military career is disrupted by an unwanted pregnancy. Forced to stay with a poor Jewish family until her child is born, she comes face to face with the realities of different cultures, and finds herself transformed by the warmth and compassion of her hosts. Ultimately, she is forced to make the most difficult decision of her life: to rejoin her troops at the front, or stay with her child.

This film was banned by the Soviet Government for 21 years. Glasnost gave a new life to Commissar.
