Twenty Days Without War

Dvadtsat' Dney Bez Voyny
USSR | 1977 | Aleksei Guerman

Twenty Days Without War

In 1942 a Soviet Army officer and writer on a 20-day leave from the front travels to his hometown of Tashkent. Witnessing the effects of war on the general populace along the way, he meets up in Tashkent with his ex-wife and strikes up a new romance with another woman. He also observes the production of a film version of his wartime memoirs, taking special note of the disconnect between his lived reality and the moviemakers’ filmed “truth.” This Aleksei Guerman feature was also banned by authorities—though only for a few years.
