Storyline

The story about one man- an artist and an intellectual- who was imprisoned by two brutal regimes, the Nazis and the Soviets. 'The Professor' is a man who lives by his own personal version of the Ten Commandments. After miraculously surviving imprisonment in a Nazi concentration camp through a bit of ironic fate, he writes a memoir of his life, which becomes the target of the Soviet censors. The so-called "freedom" of Communism becomes just as oppressive as the German concentration camp. Written by Anonymous

Not that good...
1 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

First of all, the movie doesn't have the same spirit as a book. There were no such irony and satire.. Well, you can find some funny moments, but the book is MUCH better, no doubt.

If not comparing with a book, the movie is still not that good. It's too lengthy & gets boring at some moments.

Besides the concentration camp is shown like a simple jail. I expected it to be more cruel. Prisoners always have cigarettes, they don't seem like starving, warders don't look so sadistic & so on.

All in all, if you are Lithuanian, you should watch this movie. But if you're not - you probably just find it boring.
