Yevgenia Ginzburg was a literature Professor in the University of Kazan
in the 1930's. In those days, Kazan, was a
Russian province, under the control of Moscow, with Stalin at the peak
of his power. Those days were among the darkest times in Russian
history, days marked with persecution, treachery, executions, mass
disappearances of anyone considered an enemy of the State or Stalin,
whether real or invented. Those were the days when the infamous Russian
Gulags were in full force, concentration camps set in the bitter
Siberian landscape, marked with hardships, and the long, bitter, below
50+ Celsius winters. Those were the days when both men's and women's
mettles were tested to the limit, where people showed either their
better sides or their worst. The spirit and strength of survival was
the constant companion of such then.
This movie is based on Ms. Ginzburg's memoirs, "Gulag: Many Days, Many
Lives", where she was banished for 12 years for allegedly participating
in the Trotskyist terrorist counter-revolutionary group, a group
accused of conspiring against the Russian state by plotting the defeat
of the then U.S.S.R. by capitalist countries, and murder their
communist leaders. Stalin's purges targeted all these, among others.
The labor, suffering, solidarity, survival, of Ginzburg and her fellow
inmates are vividly depicted in this biographical epic.
You will see incomprehensible hatred among the prisoners of different
backgrounds. You will see deep sacrifices people had to make to stay
alive. You will see gang violence and rape, as women were forced to
sell their bodies for a loaf of bread. You will see prisoners having to
make good judgments as to whom to trust and whom not as a key to
survival. You will see heroic actions taken by everyday people to
protect each other from death from the elements or from being simply
shot by the brutal guards. And you will see deep gratitude, simple
happiness even if for just a moment, and motherly love.
The ensuing love between the camp's doctor and Ginzburg was, I believe,
a just reward for the immense trials these two had endured over the
years. The ending, which I will not spoil for you, will leave your mind
turning for a while, and then, wonder in amazement.
Ms. Watson was at her best. All the parts were well done. Veteran actor
Ian Hart as the infamous Beylin was excellent. That part when he yells
at Ginzburg when she refused to sign her confession - even I was
startled; it was well done. There was no attempt to dress up any parts
or make them over emotional or sentimental. No, the story unfolds as it
would in everyday life, in black and white, with no attempt to
overdress anything. If any parts drive you to tears, it is from
imagining how and what you would have done had you been there.
I lived in Russia for 3 years, working as a University Professor. Much
of what I saw in the movie triggered old memories. I found myself
saying over and over, "Just as I saw it!" The intrigues surrounding
your job and status in Russia is still accurate to this day, although
the danger of imprisonment no longer exists.
So, dear friends, if you wish to spend the better part of 2 hours
watching a story which will keep you spellbound and mesmerized until
the end, without a moment of boredom, this is the movie to watch,
enjoy, and appreciate. A story of people having lost all will to live,
and how with a little help and compassionate love, this will is
renewed. This is the story of one woman whose strength and
determination inspired others, as it still does today, as I hope will
inspire you as well.
