Storyline

The Russian Winter is a film about journeys. It's a film about Grammy nominated musician John Forte's journey from one of Brooklyn's most dangerous neighborhoods to the country's most prestigious, elite boarding school to federal prison where his fourteen year sentence for drug transporting was cut in half, incredibly commuted by George W. Bush. The Russian Winter is a film about the journey from rapidly changing Moscow into the vast interiors of Russia. It's a film about John Forte's determination to have his music heard. It's a film about cultural exchange, self-reflection, fatigue and success. The Russian Winter is about the unlikely journey from a prison cell to the planet's second largest continent. It's about confinement and freedom, and finding one's footing as paradigms shift. Written by Anonymous

Must-see

Absolutely amazing, vivid and emotional film with lots of beautiful music and lyrics. Dynamic and bright. Brilliantly accurate coverage of Russia, a sort of both inside and outside looks at the same things and events... Everything you see on the screen is a real life, it is not colored or tarnished, it is objective. Sometime funny, sometimes tensed, but truthful all the time. The director used only those materials that were shot while the tour and some real pictures of John Forte. It has a lot of wisdom to be read between lines. And it reveals some great musicians as well. The movie teaches and inspires. And that's what a great movie should do!
