Trial on the Road

Proverka na Dorogah
USSR, 1971 | Aleksei Guerman

Trial on the Road

Banned for 15 years by Soviet authorities for injecting ambiguity, nuance, and anti-heroism into a genre (the WWII drama) that was always solidly heroic (if not downright mythic), Aleksei Guerman’s first solo work is a masterpiece. The movie tells of a Red Army officer turned Nazi collaborator who is recaptured by Russian partisans and must prove his loyalty to their cause by going on a series of dangerous missions. “The most interesting debut film in Soviet cinema since Tarkovsky’s Ivan’s Childhood.” ­–Time Out Film Guide. Not available on DVD.
