Erich von Stroheim,
In the Fog depicts the decisions that people are forced to make during times of conflict where they are no longer masters of their own fate, but victims of circumstances beyond their control.
Suchenya, the main protagonist, is confronted with choices that no one will ever want to make but, along with other characters in the film, is forced to make them. The story is not so much the consequences of those decisions that determine the characters' fate but the unexpected events that unfold as a result of those decisions.
This is an slow moving but thoughtful film about impossible choices some of us are forced to make that profoundly shape our futures.
The scene where Suchenya's interrogator waves to him would have to be one of the cruelest waves ever seen in a movie.
