100 Days Before the Command (Russian: Сто дней до приказа, translit. Sto dney do prikaza) is a 1990 drama film by Hussein Erkenov.

Made in the final months of the Soviet Union, the film follows three young Red Army recruits, Zyrin, Belikov and Elin. The film has no narrative structure and rather than telling a story uses vignettes to show the conditions in which Soviet army recruits lived. The film is often homoerotic, the soldiers are shown to have very little privacy and are forced into such intimate acts as washing each other.[1]
