Ostrov/The Island

I saw a great movie last night called Ostrov. The American title is The Island. There is something about it that reminds me of Babette's Feast, though Babette's Feast is a bit more light-hearted. It is a Russian story of redemption, sacrifice and listening to the Lord's voice, whatever He may say. I know you can get a copy from Netflix, which is where I received mine. Be warned, The Island is subtitled, which will bug some, but I've never found it to be a problem. Here's a clip w/o subtitles.

Sit back, enjoy, and let the story carry you.
