Halfway through the film I was getting worried that this might be the worst misstep Weir, a personal favourite director of mine, had made. At the end of the film despite a few misgivings I'd rank this up there with the best of his work. It's definitely better than FEARLESS at least.

The problem is that the first half is just twitchy and rushed feeling. Despite the plot being relativel... read more

Adventure/dramatic story chronicling the escape of prisoners from a Siberian gulag. Their journey will take them across the desert, snow, trying to reach a non-hostile country; they will fight for food, search for water and of course see companions fight for survival.
Surprisingly a very good movie. Excellent performances. Great make-up and scenery. Kudos to Peter Weir for an admirable dire... read more

Erittäin hyvä ja onnistunut tekele... perkele et jäi hyvät fiilikset. Tässä on Pahuutta ja hyvyyttä ja kaikkea siltä väliltä. Kaikille selviytymis leffojen ystäville suosittelen tätä... ja myös vihollisille... Oppikaa tykkäämään perkeleen Hannut!

Anautix' Movie Diary 2014 (198 movies items)

"17.01.2014 Another loooong journey, even much longer than in Seraphim Falls - from a Gulag in Siberia to India. Overall a good movie, especially after the break out. What I didn't like were the different dialects imitating different languages (at least in the German dubbed version) and most "Russians" in this movie spoke terrible Russian. Further I would like to know what happened with Mr. Smith."

“The Way Back is a great film, I think the reason why I liked it so much was it was based on True Events. It is an epic tale of a small group of men who escape a siberian gulag, and head off over miles and miles of hostile territory to find their freedom. At times this movie is slow, the action none but this is about a group of men escaping so most of the time yes they are walking or hiding or looking for food. It also shows the men at times lossing their minds, and how they deal with that. The story is a slow adventure, and I for one wanted to watch their journey even though you know the ending if you have heard of the story, it is still a enjoyable watch and a very interesting look at a true story.” read more
