Product Description

In 1942, Belarus is in the hands of Nazis and the local militia. Sushenya is taken from his house in the middle of the night by Burov and his sidekick Voitik, two partisan fighters hiding out in the hills and forest. Sushenya is the only one of four captured rail workers who has been allowed to live by the occupying Germans after seemingly sabotaging the rail tracks. With the village and even his wife turned against him as a collaborator, Sushenya accepts what must happen next until the Germans suddenly appear and he is - perhaps - given a second chance, leaving space for doubt both on his betrayal and on the legitimacy of punishment by death. The three and later two men walk in the wood, exhausted, fleeing death from the Nazis while discussing and living the moral dilemmas of treason, heroism, guilt and revenge.

Shot in sumptuous long takes and vibrant colour, In the Fog ultimately questions the corruption of man's very humanity in the context of war.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and gruelling examination of the soul 10 Aug 2013
By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Typically, even recent British and American films about WW2 look upon Europe as a raging battlefield and focus upon military engagements. This bleakly convincing Eastern European production portrays an entirely different aspect of the Great Patriotic War, by contrasting three characters in occupied Belorussia. The trio -- a collaborator who seems to have betrayed his workmates to the Nazis, his boyhood friend who has become a partisan, and a 'freedom fighter' -- cross paths in the forest. And their interactions demonstrate that the situation we're presented with may be a long way from the truth... always the first casualty of war...

In The Fog is filmed in washed-out greys and browns in a languid fashion, often opening each scene with a static landscape shot of frozen countryside or tangled, bare trees through which the characters stumble and scramble. The tension comes not from frantic action but from hesitant dialogue, frequently delivered in tones of despair. The condemned man knows it is futile to speak in his defence but he tells his tale in any case. The recent history of his two companions is likewise revealed in stark, unflattering flashbacks.
The result is a sobering portrait of life under occupation, and of how quickly morality crumbles under pressure. An act of sabotage is plotted and carried out, not to strike a blow for freedom against the Nazis, but to undermine a local supervisor even though this will result in many innocent deaths. Comrades are betrayed in an eyeblink to save a skin for a single day. Wives doubt their husbands. And young men join the resistance for the most superficial of motives.

In The Fog peels back layers of motivation to reveal the fragility of the human condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Double Bind 5 April 2014
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All too real examination of hatred, betrayal, love, comradeship and put naked fear. Slow, ponderous but very deliberate in its intimate depictions of the sheer scale of fear retching out of intestines during wartime; as each person becomes entrapped in an ascribed role as the persecutors attempt to stamp their iron fist upon the inner reaches of the soul. The film shows how life in the rural areas outside of Belarus collapsed into mini Nazi citadels after the German occupation. The film begins with a naturalistic journey as a stomp through a period 1940's village, as three men walk through the crowds to finish their final sentence. The film works then backwards from this event to make some sense of it. Brilliant in its artistic execution it begins to weave a magic around its themes.

Given the mass killing within this era, the micro focus on a few deaths brings the momentous scale of what occurred en masse to a greater focus. Within the film are the constant tugs of - these are people - they had mothers, sisters, wives, brothers and friends- they were human beings. Each relationship however was torn asunder by the tidal wave of history which swept before them. It completely re orientated their lives so they would be disfigured for aeons.

Having a close focus on the lives of three men each forced together to enact a punishment upon a presumed miscreant- one of the three adds another dimension. It is set in a naturalistic light which brings the 1940's back together again - as a recent - but also very primitive and human era. Brimming with emotional reality, it is akin to a Hamsun, Sartre, Kafka novel and rivals "Our Own" for its intensity in story telling. This is one of the great war films and is certainly irrelevant to any "history buff" or anyone else who suffers from autism. Because this is about the human predicament and how people are coiled around a sense of anguish, not how shiny the buttons on the military cuff were.

5.0 out of 5 stars excelent film. 20 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Loznitsa is a very good film director, in the line of Sokurov, Sharunas Bartas, and others. The film, good actors, photography, script, and he plays with the documentary and the ficition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very very clever film 26 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
An enjoyable and engrossing film set during WWII in Russia.

The story line concerns a person who is believed by the locals to have collaborated with the Nazis when he actually did not and the prejudice's and actions that follow because of that.

There is not much action and the films success is in the acting and dialogue and covers an aspect of the war that few films have.

A thought provoking and in some ways a very sad film.
