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 »

Goofs

The text and map at the start of the film show countries that the Sowjet Union allegedly forcibly occupied during World War II. This is not true. As a result of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact the Sowjet Union invaded the Baltic states, parts of Finnland, Poland and Romania. During and after the second World War the Sowjet Union never forcibly occupied Albania or Yugoslavia as shown in the map. See more »

Heartbreaking story
1 November 2018 | by morozanzelikaSee all my reviews

A story of Lithuania, or other Baltic states is usually unseen, somewhere in the sidelines. Howeve this movie brings it forward and it's captivating, also cinematographically very beautiful. Could not hold back tears during the movie, but would watch it again and definitely recommend it. I hope this movie reaches the attention it deserves.
