"LITTLE MOSCOW traces the politically dangerous love affair between Vera (Svetlana Khodchenkova), the beautiful wife of a Russian military pilot, and Michal (seductive Leslaw Zurek), a dashing Polish lieutenant. Delving into a period of Eastern bloc history not previously exploited by popular cinema, noted Polish writer-helmer Waldemar Krzystek (SUSPENDED, DISMISSED FROM LIFE) paints a broad-strokes but no less affecting portrait of the tension-filled Soviet-Polish "friendship" of the times” (Variety).
