USSR | 1968 | Grigori Aronov, Aleksei Guerman
Set during the “Red Terror” campaign that swept across Russia in the wake of the 1917 Revolution, Aleksei Guerman’s first feature (co-directed with Grigori Aronov) tells of a former Tsarist army officer in St. Petersburg who is arrested as a counterrevolutionary. This moral man, innocent of all charges, must not only clear his name but also adapt to life in an immoral new world.
