Trivia

To avoid potential confusion with 50 Shades of Gray, many alternative titles were considered to replace the original title, "Between Shades of Gray". Screenwriter Ben York Jones came up with Ashes in the Snow, for its similarity in cadence, and its narrative significance. See more »

Baltic Schindler's List
29 November 2018 | by KulliKaljulindSee all my reviews

Without giving out the spoilers, it's not possible to say much. But look, I was sitting in the packed cinema hall and I had to sniff again when one of the bad guys started to smoke as I could smell the tobacco burning. And then, when there was a snowstorm, it felt like they turned the heating off. That's a first for me. Yes, it is close to home - I'm Estonian, so the scenario was the same in my country as it was in Lithuania. And in Latvia. And in Ukraine, and so on. Just replace the nazis SS with the communists NKVD and you get it why I referred to the Schindler's List. Brilliant acting, brilliant cinematography, everything worked really well together. Thanks! Please indulge yourselves and get some real cinema experience.
