During Stalin's reign of terror, Evgenia Ginzburg, a literature professor, was sent to 10 years hard labor in a gulag in Siberia. Having lost everything, and no longer wishing to live, she meets the camp doctor and begins to come back to life.
What a sorry waste. A bunch of clichés, rich girl back from years in Tokyo, but mind, nothing about her indicates a stay in Japan. Now she is back to Daddy's cutesy castle, but only to start working incognito in Daddy's automobile plant. Here the young hopeful handsome (not really, I could have named a few actors for real eye candy here) genius from research falls in love with her and about two minutes later they become an item. OK, it felt like two minutes. End of possible suspense curve as far as this relationship is concerned. Oh yes, and there is Daddy's new woman whom he springs on his daughter the first evening - but she is such a good woman, even the most prickly potential stepdaughter has to surrender sooner rather than later. Now we need some more plot to fill in the time, we have 90 minutes to kill, after all. Right, there's always the cheating, lying bloke high up on the ladder who is selling out the firm to the evil Americans or Russians or both? But who cares anyway. Young genius and daughter to the rescue, and we are all one big happy family once more. Bottom line: AVOID this one!!!!
