Yes, I heard it in the Red October movie. But what is the origin of the song/music ?
it was made for the movie - its from its soundtrack.
The soundtrack was composed by Basil Poledouris who also composed the soundtracks for Conan the Barbarian, Robocop, Starship Troopers and Free Willy - both music and text was written by him for the movie "Hunt for Red October" - and the fact that most people think its really a traditional russian song or something is proof that he did his job very well.
Apparently there are subbed versions of 9-Rota floating around (at least on the filesharing systems). If one could find a subbed version online, i'm sure the Yanks and Eurowussies would appreciate it
Personally though, I liked the movie, but it was nothing special. I can make a list of Russian/Soviet war movies that overpower it in every aspect bar special effects.
Yea its a good movie. But form what I hear it isn't accurate at all.
The actual battle for Hill 3234 resulted only in 6 losses for the Soviets and ~90 killed for the enemy. The Soviets military strength on the hill was 39 soldiers, the enemies strength was about 250-500. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_for_Hill_3234
