This 2011 action film is really a piece of propaganda, but it’s a story about the Russians invading Georgia (the country, not the US state) in 2008. American journalist Thomas Anders is saved in Iraq by Georgian troops, and then goes to Georgia when he hears that conflict may be stirring up there. While examining Georgian life, he captures shocking footage of the Russians, which he struggles to get out of the country. However, the five-day war is going on, and now he, his cameraman, and a local woman must fight to survive. A fun fact about this movie – Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvilli actually chose actor Andy Garcia to play the part of Saakashvilli! That’s how biased this movie is!5 Days of Warincludes the Georgian, Russian and English languages.
