In The Fog

In the USSR 1942 a man is wrongly accused of collaboration

Occupied Belarus, 1942. 

A railway worker (Vladimir Svirski), accused of being an informant for the Germans, is marched at night deep into a forest by two partisans (Vlad Abashin and Sergei Kolesov), who prepare to take their revenge. 

Russian writer-director Sergei Loznitsa’s slow-burning, atmospheric drama avoids conventional battlefield sequences and echoes Jean-Pierre Melville’s sublime Resistance epic Army Of Shadows in exploring the harrowing moral choices experienced by individuals in wartime. 

Prepare yourself for long, contemplative takes, an assured use of extended flashbacks, and a memorable fog-bound finale.
