  • PG-13
  • 2011

Four-time Oscar nominee Ed Harris (Apollo 13), Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe) and Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement) and Colin Farrell (In Bruges) star in this epic saga of survival from six-time Oscar-nominee Peter Weir (Witness, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World). Inspired by an incredible true story, THE WAY BACK begins in 1940 when seven prisoners attempt the impossible: escape from a brutal Siberian gulag. Thus begins a treacherous 4,500-mile trek to freedom across the world's most merciless landscapes. They have little food and few supplies. They don't know or trust each other. But together, they must withstand nature at is most extreme. Their humanity is further tested when they meet a teenage runaway who begs to join them on their quest. A compelling testament to the human spirit, this gripping wilderness adventure is "Peter Weir at his hypnotic best" (Telluride Film Festival).

True StoryThe story is true. Despite the claims. They later found that a man, not the one who wrote book, is the actual man that completed the so called long walk.Score: 5/5

Watch itSaw this in cinema and have to say, it was really good. I enjoyed the storyline and the acting was phenomenal. An emotional movie, it had me moved and the friends who I saw it with thought it was also a good movie. Definitely worth watching..Score: 4/5

BORING!!!Terribly long movie. Had no likeable characters and had you more worried about when it was going to be over than what was going to happen to them. Very little music in the movie, and A LOT of silent walking. Considering that the story wasn't even true, it just makes it that much worse..Score: 2/5

The Way BackGreat story of an epic journey! Whether or not it was true, it was a unique tale of a prison escape set against some beautiful wilderness scenes. It held my attention the whole time!.Score: 4/5

True or not, it is still an inspirational filmI wonder why some people watch films… I watch them to be entertained (and occasionally informed) and this is an extremely riveting film, showcasing some spectacular scenery and with some powerful performances. I suppose what happens is that people want to be like the professional reviewers and find fault in everything they see… it is all a matter of perception. Whether or not this film is based on a true story or not is neither here nor there, it is surely based on the dreams of hundreds of thousands who suffered in the gulags and mines of Siberia dreaming about freedom, the very same freedom that most of us seem to take for granted - just like Mryan points out! Looking for a documentary, look elsewhere. Looking for Oscar performances, look elsewhere. Looking for a film that will raise your spirits, look no further..Score: 5/5

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.

Picnic At Hanging RockDrama1975

This sensual and striking chronicle of a disappearance and its aftermath put director Peter Weir on the map and helped usher in a new era of Australian cinema. Based on an acclaimed 1967 novel by Joan Lindsay, Picnic at Hanging Rock is set at the turn of the twentieth century and concerns a small group of students from an all- female college who vanish, along with a chaperone, while on a St. Valentine’s Day outing. Less a mystery than a journey into the mystic, as well as an inquiry into issues of class and sexual repression in Australian society, Weir’s gorgeous, disquieting film is a work of poetic horror whose secrets haunt viewers to this day.
