COMRADE is a nice little story about an adolescent boy who runs off to live with his sister, whom his dad turned out three years before. He befriends her nutso neighbor: an aging Commie who is determined to defend his hovel from the authorities. This offbeat story is well played, if a bit slow. The kid is not strong enough to drive the film, so it begins to seem somewhat contrived. This is an interesting movie, but it is not as engaging or compelling as the ones listed above.
