Storyline

Yesterday's Leningrad schoolgirl Masha Yablochkina, after a fierce blockade winter of 1941-1942, comes to the railway courses hoping to survive and gain strength. From there, the girl is sent to the construction of the Shlisselburg Highway, which connects the city with the Great Land and is in direct sight of German artillery. So the heroine gets into the 48th locomotive column of the special reserve NKPS, which at the cost of the deadly risk is to deliver to Leningrad 75% of all cargo and military equipment.

An episode of WWII

The Siege of Leningrad, also known in Russia as the Leningrad Blockade was part of Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union by Nazi Germany. The forces deployed against the city included the Wehrmacht's Army Group North, Finnish and Italian troops and smaller contingents from other fascist countries like Spain. The siege lasted from September 1941 to January 1944. The objective was to fulfill Hitler's very explicit directive: to exterminate the entire population of Leningrad and raze the city to the ground. That failed, but nearly 1.5 million Soviet civilians and soldiers died, the former from bombing and shelling but mostly from starvation and sickness.

To keep the city alive supplies were desperately needed. A road was opened between Leningrad and Lake Ladoga that continued across the lake. Watercraft were used in summer; in winter, they were replaced by trucks and a railway laid over the frozen lake. To operate the railway was hair raising dangerous; besides the ever present peril of the ice cracking, the trains were under constant artillery and aerial attacks. The road was known as the Corridor of Life or Corridor of Immortality, the Russian title of this film.

I liked very much the fist hour and a half; there are many genuinely moving scenes. Near the ending, it goes a little Hollywood and quality diminishes. Also, it is too long. Nevertheless, it is worth watching. First rate special effects, excellent acting and fluid, dynamic direction.
