Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


This is a film based on a true story. Joseph Martin Bauer wrote this story as a novel in 1955. Germany made a TV play for it in 1959. This film was made in Germany in 2001. The protagonist, Cornelius Rost (1922-1983), has been hiding his name for fear of being tracked by the KGB. Therefore, fictions, TV dramas and films all use pseudonyms.

The film begins with the separation of the protagonist and his wife and daughter, then omits the war scene and directly jumps to the trial of the Soviet Union – 25 years of reform through labor. Then a train carrying hundreds of people moved forward in an ice and snow. One of the German soldiers who was familiar with the terrain explained this: we are going to dinif. Where is dinif? First pass through the Ural Mountain, then Asia, then the yenisai River, then the Lena River to the East, and then go northeast into the Arctic Circle, which is to the East. From the map, point dinif is only a few hundred kilometers away from Alaska. People who are good at water and are not afraid of cold and hunger swim across the Bering Strait to the United States.

It’s such a long way. Even by train, the protagonist can make the distance of hemorrhoids. Relying on his perseverance, extraordinary courage and determination to go home, the protagonist fled on a stormy night after five years of reeducation through labor. With the help of a German doctor who wanted to escape but was suffering from cancer, he took clothes, knives, alcohol stove, a pistol + 12 bullets, Two catties of bacon, a few catties of dry bread and a hand-painted simple map. All the simple luggage set out. The doctor advised him to go north to avoid the search, then go west along the Arctic Ocean, go to the Lena River, and then go south. This unexpected route enabled him to escape successfully in the past few months, making most Soviets who could not find him believe that he had frozen to death in the ice and snow. Except for the same resolute Soviet officer, because he believed that this man’s will would enable him to survive.

On several occasions, he almost died. Fortunately, God was kind to him. When he was starving to death, he prayed to God, so a seal came out from the edge of the Arctic Ocean, with meat and fat; When encountering a snowstorm, I met two gold diggers, saved their lives and set out on the road together. At this time, I still have 10000 kilometers away from home; When the gold digger knocked down the cliff for gold and was about to be eaten by wild wolves, a group of Yakutsk natives rescued him from the gate of death. At the same time, they kept warm with one of the beautiful widows for a period of time until he was completely healed. When they left, they got a husky from the natives ~ this husky was denounced by a group of loggers, When he met a Soviet officer, husky gave his life to save him, and the protagonist escaped again. When he got to Central Asia, he was no different from a beggar. At this time, he was sent clothes, money and passport by a kind-hearted Jew.. The Jews were later found by Soviet officers and poisoned themselves. After many hardships, he finally reached the border between Turkmenistan and Iran, and crossed the bridge to Iran, but the Soviet officer had been waiting on the bridge for a long time.. At this time, the miracle appeared again. Maybe his feat of escaping 14000 kilometers in the past three years moved the Soviets. Maybe the Jews said before they died: “I did help him, and everyone will help him.” it made the Soviets find out that the Soviets were open and let him go to Iran this time. As a result, they were caught as Soviet spies in Iran.. He said about his situation. Iran asked his uncle to recognize people. Over time, his uncle couldn’t recognize him. Fortunately, his uncle brought a photo album, a photo given to his mother in 1937, so that they could recognize each other.

Finally, on a Christmas night, he returned home and finally reunited with his wife and daughter for eight years.

Some people say that this is Germany’s Shawshank. I don’t agree with him. Shawshank is an example of planning and moving after 20 years of careful preparation. The main highlight is the 20 years of humiliation and wisdom. The protagonist of this film shows a strong desire to escape from the beginning, and has no time and opportunity to prepare, because everyone will be poisoned by lead after staying here for a long time, not to mention the coal mine collapse, typhoid fever and so on. His escape depended on his will, the help of countless kind-hearted people and the care of God. In particular, the German doctor at the beginning laid the foundation for him in the early stage of his escape, while the Jews in the later stage repaid good for bad. Without his passport, he could not leave the great union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

Many World War II films from the German perspective give people a deep reflection on the ruthlessness of the war, the trauma of the war, and the kind people. This film is like this. There is no complaint, no sensationalism, but real cruelty
