Did You Know?


In the scene in which Victor is walking on the market, most of the extras were Finnish. Out of the frame we can hear one of them saying in Finnish: "I almost looked at the camera". See more »


Victor was seen making a parachute jump from a De Havilland Beaver in the early 1930s. This airplane wasn't produced until after WWII and it was unlikely the Soviets would have used anything but a Russian-built aircraft. See more »

A movie about love and freedom
29 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

When I first saw this movie in the 1980s, in communist Romania, a situation similar to that of the film, I liked it very much. Romania was a mini-Siberia in the '80s, when you couldn't find almost anything to eat in the shops, and inside the houses it was cold and dark. Watching it again in 2017, I liked it just as much. It's a powerful movie, not easy to see. It helps you appreciate your life, how to become humble. John Savage, an extraordinary actor, plays a special role. And Francesca Annis and Willie Nelson are very good. If you can be happy in the heaviest and harshest conditions of life, then you are really strong, a real survivor, without worrying about money and fame. And if you are a man alone and you find a woman who really loves you, then you are really happy. But many do not know how to appreciate it.
