2010. 127 min.

With Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris and Colin Farrell.

Directed by Peter Weir.


This gruelling drama set during World War 2 follows a group of prisoners who break out of a Russian labour camp and begin a 6 500-km trek across Siberia and the Gobi Desert to reach India and freedom.

They include a Pole wrongly convicted of spying, a Russian gangster (Farrell), an American engineer and a teenage orphan.

It’s an enthralling watch refreshingly free of overblown heroics, focusing on the bond between the men and their battle for survival.
