  • 2020

Jack Cunningham (Ben Affleck) once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full ride to college, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is stuck in a meaningless job and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life. When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boy starts to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him. But will it be enough to fill the void, heal the deep wounds of his past, and set him on the road to redemption?

Over-Hyped AffleckThis stunk of post rehab Ben trying to get millions that he drank straight to his liver. If anything needed redemption it was the A.A. Group that he attended..Score: 1/5

Had high hopes...😔This movie suffers from a main actor who struggles to find the ability to truly deliver a good performance. I like the storyline (rinse and repeat) but the actor does an awful job of portraying the true intent. There is a main plot but the sub-plots don’t do justice to their focus, e.g. on one of the boy’s story. I feel the writers did a reasonable job but the director failed to capture the true essence of the story. You will find yourself fast forwarding through the scenes of dreadful acting..Score: 3/5

След седемгодишно отсъствие от големия екран, шесткратно номинираният за Оскар австралийски режисьор Питър Уиър ("Обществото на Мъртвите Поети", "Шоуто на Труман", "Господар и Командир") се завръща с реалната история, базирана по мемоарите на полския лейтенант Славомир Равич - "Дългата Разходка". Филма Бягството разказва за група полски войници (Колин Фарел, Ед Харис, Джим Стърджис), който успяват да избягат от сибирска каторга през 1942 година и поемат дългия път към свободата, прекосявайки Сибир, пустинята Гоби, Тибет и Хималаите, за да стигнат до Индия.

Història narrada en primera persona pel Slavomir Rawicz, enviat al gulag pels soviètics després de sobreviure a la invasió alemany de Polònia, qui aconsegueix fugir a peu del seu captiveri el 1940 travessant l'Himàlaia, el Tibet, el desert del Gobi i la Índia.

Drama, založené na skutečné události z roku 1940, popisuje útěk mezinárodní skupinky vězňů z ruského gulagu. Uprchlíci se vymaní ze sevření nelítostné sibiřské zimy, projdou oblastí jezera Bajkal a překročí Transsibiřskou magistrálu. Před sebou však mají ještě mnohem krutější zkoušky lidské odolnosti a vůle, poušť Gobi, Himálaje a Tibet. Zachrání se až po 4 000 mílích v Indii. Film Útěk ze Sibiře je založen na pamětech Slawomira Rawicza popisujících jeho útěk ze sibiřského gulagu. Spolu s tisíci dalšími vězni podstoupil Rawicz krutý tříměsíční transport do pracovního tábora na Sibiři.

1941, syv krigsfanger flygter fra den frygtelige sovjetiske Gulag-lejr. Igennem 11 måneder kæmper de sig over 6.500 km fra Sibirien over den glohede Gobi-ørken i Mongoliet og videre over Himalaya bjergene. De tvinges igennem en udmattende overlevelsekamp mod det barske terræn, sult, tørst, sol og frost. Men de kæmper også en indre kamp for att træffe de vanskelige valg, der udfordrer samvittigheden, når mennesket presses til den yderste grænse og kæmper for sin frihed.

Während des Zweiten Weltkrieges treffen die Kriegsgefangenen Janusz, Valka und Mr. Smith in einem sibirischen Arbeitslager auf weitere überlebenswillige Leidensgenossen. Die siebenköpfige Gruppe verschiedenster Nationalitäten schmiedet den Plan, aus dem Lager auszubrechen. Während eines wütenden Eissturms nutzen sie ihre Chance und setzen das waghalsige Vorhaben in die Tat um. Um endlich Freiheit und Frieden in ihren jeweiligen Heimatländern zu finden, begibt sich die Gemeinschaft auf eine 4000 Meilen lange Reise durch die Mongolei, die Wüste Gobi und das Himalaya-Gebirge – eine übermenschliche Kraftprobe, bei der die Integrität der Gruppe mehr als einmal auf dem Spiel steht...

Μια ιστορία απόδρασης από γκούλαγκ της Σιβηρίας του 1939. Αιχμάλωτοι του Κόκκινου Στρατού από διάφορες εθνότητες δεν πρέπει μονάχα να καταφέρουν να δραπετεύσουν, αλλά να αντέξουν και τις αντίξοες συνθήκες αφού τα καταφέρουν, δια μέσου της Σιβηρίας, της ερήμου Γκόμπι κι ως την Ινδία.

Adaptación de 'The Long k: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom' de Slavomir Rawicz. El protagonista narra en primera persona cómo, tras la invasión de Polonia por los alemanes (1939), fue arrestado por el ejército soviético y encarcelado en Siberia; cómo, después, consiguió escapar del gulag (campos de concentración de la Unión Soviética) en compañía de otros presos y, finalmente, cómo huyendo a pie llegaron desde Siberia al Himalaya, al desierto del Gobi y, atravesando el Tibet, acabaron estableciéndose en la India. Recientemente, varios historiadores han puesto en duda la veracidad de esta historia.

Los fugitivos del gulag siberiano viajan 6500 km a pie hasta la libertad en la India.

Toiseen maailmansotaan sijoittuvien tapahtumien keskushenkilö on puolalainen sotilas Janusz, joka tuomitaan vakoojana Siperian pahamaineiselle vankileirille. Erämaan ja kylmyyden saartamassa vankilassa hallitsevat venäläiset rikolliset, eivätkä heikoimmat selviä äärimmäisissä olosuhteissa. Janusz ryhtyy pian suunnittelemaan pakoa ja hänen ympärilleen muodostuu tiivis poliittisten vankien rinki. Tiimin vahvin voima on vaitelias amerikkalainen, Mister Smith. Mukaan pakomatkalle hivuttautuu myös rikollisjengin kovanaama Valka, murhamies, joka ansaitsee paikkansa pakoremmistä ainoastaan puukkonsa takia.Vangit onnistuvat pakenemaan leirin piikkilanka-aitojen läpi ja eksyttämään koirapartiot kannoiltaan. Pian he ovat vapaita miehiä jäisessä metsässä. Pako johtaa Siperiasta ensin Mongoliaan ja lopulta Tiibetin kautta Intiaan. Matkaa kertyy 6 500 kilometriä. Elokuva perustuu puolalaisen Slavomir Rawiczin muistelmateokseseen The Long Walk.

En 1940, une petite troupe de prisonniers décide de s’évader d’un camp de travail sibérien. Pour ces hommes venus de tous les horizons, s’échapper de cet enfer ne sera que le début de l’aventure… Ensemble, ils vont parcourir plus de 10 000 kilomètres, à travers la toundra sibérienne glacée, traversant les plaines de Mongolie, les fournaises du désert de Gobi puis les sommets de l’Himalaya pour franchir la Grande Muraille de Chine. Certains s’arrêteront en chemin, d’autres ne survivront pas aux épreuves. L’Inde – alors sous contrôle anglais – est le but ultime. Mais la route est longue, les rencontres risquées, les conditions physiques épouvantables, et chacun a ses secrets.

שטחי פולין הכבושים על ידי הרוסים, 1939. יאנוש מורשע בריגול, מוקע על ידי אשתו ונשלח מזרחה למאסר ממושך בערבותיה הקפואות של סיביר. יחד עם עוד כמה אסירים ובהם פושע קשוח ואידיאליסט אמריקני הוא מצליח להימלט אל סכנת המוות שבחוץ. המרדף של הסוהרים אחר הבורחים לא נמשך זמן רב מדי וההנחה היא שאין שום דרך שבה יוכלו לשרוד את תנאי מזג האוויר הנוראיים. בין סופות שלגים לנחילי יתושים עליהם לעבור דרך ארוכה שתיקח אותם מעבר לחומה הסינית דרך מדבר גובי לטיבט, לחציית ההימלאיה ולהודו.

A szabadság felbecsülhetetlen értékű kincs, és az ember akár a lehetetlenre is vállalkozik, hogy visszanyerje azt. Ez a gondolat jár a fejében néhány hadifogolynak is, amikor eldöntik, hogy megszöknek a szibériai gulagból, és bármi áron is, de hazajutnak. Hat rab indul útnak, hogy eljussanak Indiába, köztük az amerikai Mr. Smith, az indulatos orosz, Valka és a fiatal lengyel srác, Janusz, valamint hozzájuk csapódik egy árva lengyel lány, Irena, aki szintén az életéért menekül. 4000 mérföldet kell megtenniük gyalog a Takla-Makán sivatagon és a Himalája fagyos csúcsain keresztül. Az út a biztos halállal egyenlő, a kis csapat szökevénynek azonban ez az egyetlen esélye, hogy újra szabad emberként éljenek.

La storia di tre uomini che nel 1941 realizzarono un'impresa epica, raggiungendo l'India dopo essere scappati da un gulag siberiano e dopo aver percorso a piedi, senza alcun sostegno, ben 6500 chilometri, in condizioni estreme. In realtà però il gruppo era ben più numeroso.


1940년, 역사상 최악의 시베리아 강제 노동수용소라 불리는 '캠프 105'! 7명의 수감자들이 목숨을 건 탈출을 감행한다. 살을 파고드는 시베리아의 살인적인 추위와 지옥보다 더 고통스러운 고비사막의 폭염을 이겨내며 오직 자유를 찾아 6,500KM라는 믿을 수 없는 거리를 탈주한 이들의 리얼 감동 실화가 시작된다!

Een aantal gevangenen weet tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog te ontsnappen uit een strafkamp in Siberië en begint aan een lange tocht naar de vrijheid. Deze tocht vol ontberingen voert hen van het koude Siberië via de Gobiwoestijn naar de Himalaya en India en zal zo'n 6400 kilometer bedragen.

W 1940 roku grupa śmiałków pochodzących z różnych krajów ucieka z sowieckiego gułagu. Bez mapy czy kompasu uciekinierzy podejmują się niemożliwego - od Syberii, przez tajgę, wyżyny Mongolii, pustynię Gobi, Tybet, Himalaje docierają aż do Indii. Niezwykła podróż przez 6000 km pełna jest heroicznej walki o przetrwanie. Pomimo różnic kulturowych i barier językowych przyświeca im wspólny cel – chcą odzyskać utraconą wolność. Nie sprzyjają im mordercze mrozy i nieznośny upał. Przemierzają pieszo najbardziej niezwykłe i niebezpieczne rejony świata, ucząc się przebaczać i odzyskiwać utracone w gułagu człowieczeństwo.

Denunciado por sua esposa em 1939 como um possível espião, Janusz encontra-se em um campo de trabalho da Sibéria. Vivendo em condições brutais, ele está determinado a escapar e uma nevasca lhe fornece a oportunidade perfeita e, junto a um pequeno grupo de prisioneiros, fogem. A fuga, porém, é a parte mais fácil, pois Janusz e seus companheiros têm pela frente uma caminhada de 6.500 quilômetros a pé pelo Himalaia congelado, antes que possam ser verdadeiramente livres.

"Rumo à Liberdade" relata a fuga de um pequeno grupo de prisioneiros de várias nacionalidades de um gulag na Sibéria em 1940, bem como a sua jornada de vida ao longo de milhares de quilómetros por cinco países hostis.

1940 год, Сибирь. Самый страшный лагерь для политзаключенных. Небольшая группа осужденных смогла вырваться из этого страшного места. Теперь их ждет путь домой. Долгий, очень трудный, минуя пустыни и горы, сталкиваясь с дикими животными и незнакомыми людьми. Они идут домой из последних сил, надеясь на встречу со своими близкими.

Príbeh založený na skutočnej udalosti z roku 1940, popisuje útek medzinárodnej skupiny väzňov z ruského gulagu. Počas silnej snehovej búrky sa utečencom podarí uniknúť z tábora a zanechať za sebou prenasledujúcich strážcov. Prejdú krutou sibírskou krajinou, dostanú sa do oblasti jazera Bajkal a prekročia Transsibírsku magistrálu. Pred sebou však majú ešte ďalšie kruté skúšky ľudskej odolnosti, sily a vôle. Čaká ich prechod cez púšť Gobi ďalej cesta do Himalájií a Tibetu. Zachránia sa až po 4 000 míľach dlhej a útrpnej cesty v Indii. Film Útek zo Sibíri je inšpirovaný knihou pamätí Slawomira Rawicza, poľského vojnového zajatca v ruskom gulagu. Spolu s tisíckami ďalších väzňov podstúpil Rawicz krutý trojmesačný transport do pracovného tábora na Sibíri. Kniha The Long Walk (Dlhá cesta) sa stala svetoznáma a bola preložená do 25 jazykov.

Sju krigsfångar - vissa kriminella, andra politiska fångar - flyr från ett arbetsläger i ett helvetiskt Gulag 1941. Deras väg mot frihet sträcker sig från Sibirien, över den glödheta Gobiöknen och vidare över Himalayas berg till Indien. Under 600 mil av svåra umbäranden får de kämpa mot både moder natur, illvilliga främlingar och inte minst mot varandra. Alla nådde inte friheten.Gustaf Skarsgård spelar Voss, en ung lettisk krigsfånge, som är en av de främsta karaktärerna i gruppen. Filmen är inspirerad av romanen "The Long Walk" av Slavomir Rawicz, en polsk officer som deporterades till Sibirien av ryssarna 1940 och som ledde själva flykten.

1940 yılında Sovyet Rusya’ya bağlı Sibirya çalışma kampından özgürlükleri için kaçtıktan sonra 6000 km yürüyerek Gobi Çölü'nü aşıp Hindistan’a ulaşan bir grup esirin yaşadıkları macerayı ve dramı ustalıkla anlatan gerçek olaylara dayanan bir yol öyküsü...

У фільмі розповідається про втечу групи в’язнів із табору ГУЛАГу в Сибірі та їх тернистий шлях до свободи.

1939年苏德瓜分波兰后不久,波兰青年维斯切克•乔努斯(吉姆•斯特吉斯 Jim Sturgess )因其所谓的“反党反斯大林”间谍行为,被送入了西伯利亚的劳动营。其时已是1940年,在严寒的西伯利亚,乔努斯结识了同为政治犯的演员安德烈,后者有一项酝酿多时的逃跑计划,美国老人史密斯(艾德•哈里斯 Ed Harris 饰)、罪犯沃尔卡(柯林•法瑞尔 Colin Farrell 饰)等人陆续加入了他们的小圈子,在一个大雪之夜,乔努斯等七人成功逃出劳动营,他们唯一知道的,是向南前往贝加尔湖,同时躲避无处不在的举报者。一路上有人难耐恶劣的气候死去,在将要抵达贝加尔湖时,一个神秘少女伊莲娜(西尔莎•罗南 Saoirse Ronan 饰)加入了他们,她的加入,令一行人预备穿过蒙古、西藏,翻越喜马拉雅抵达英控印度寻找自由的路程又平添了几许困难…… ©豆瓣
