Storyline

Jonas Vaitkusÿs patriotic war film paints a poignant portrait of Lithuaniaÿs ten-year struggle against Soviet occupation and casts new light on folk hero Juozas Lukða-Daumantas, the legendary partisan who sought to bring Lithuaniaÿs plight to the West. Set in 1950, Utterly Alone powerfully depicts the bloody and brutal treatment meted out by Soviet Russia, aided by Lithuanian collaborators, as it systematically hunts down and kills resistance fighters. Reminiscent of the mood of Schindlerÿs List, it pays tribute to the courage and fortitude of Daumantas and his fellow fighters as they battle valiantly against the might of Stalinÿs empire. Shot in atmospheric black-and-white, Utterly Alone has a documentary feel that only serves to bolster its starkness and the hopelessness of the partisansÿ cause. Utterly Alone is preceded by a short explanatory documentary. Written by www.nmpft.org.uk

Awful peace of 40s style propaganda
3 March 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The movie is truly surprising! I'd never guess it was made in 21st century. The filming style, camera work, acting, casting -- everything came straight from 1940s soviet-style propaganda flicks. The film is basically about nothing but a group of Lithuanian nationalists battling Soviet special forces shortly after the end of WWII. In best (or perhaps worst) traditions of the propaganda genre all Lithuanian partisans are handsome heroes dispatching evil Soviets in great numbers. Of course, Soviets are all ugly bloodthirsty monsters, torturing elderly peasants and (no kidding!) burning toddlers in ovens... Avoid by all means, real bad, grim and nasty stuff.
