Brilliant movie; its story is a real nightmare.
30 April 2000 | by (Most, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

The film is about British archaeologist, who's arrested by Stalin's secret police. It shows the mechanisms of Gulags (Russian concentration camps) and the impression from it was really authentic and awful. It was a nightmare! But there was also an unbelievable love story... The direction was brilliant, actors were brilliant and the film had a some poetry deep inside, the light of humanity, with which a man can resist the bad and harsh power. You won't believe the story if you don't know something about era of Stalinism and communism.
