excellent movie and excellent book.
8 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw that movie many years ago in Germany. Later I saw again the movie in TV in Movies in Time. Since then I am looking all over the internet in order to buy it but it is not possible to find where to buy it. It looks to me that it is a shame that such a good movie disappears and nobody else can see the farce of communism and how these regimes lie to the entire world. If somebody knows where I can buy this movie please e-mail to me. Thanks Sergio. Artur London begin his Book: to my companions of misfortune who where executed although innocent or who died in prison. To all the innocent victims of the trials. To all those friends,known or unknown, who fought and who gave their lives in the hope of achieving a better world. To all those who carry on the struggle to restore humanity to socialism.
