DESTINY OF A MAN / SUDBA CHELOVEKA / СУДЬБА ЧЕЛОВЕКА
A screen adaptation of the story of the same name by Soviet writer Mikhail Sholokhov, a Nobel Prize winner.
Andrei Sokolov, the film’s protagonist, had lost in the war with fascist Germany his wife and children, had survived the horrors of a concentration camp. He was already being led to be shot, but at the last minute the camp’s commandant, Muller, revoked the sentence. After his release from the camp, Andrei Sokolov marched with the Soviet Army as far as Berlin. But Fate would not stop testing him: on Victory Day he got the news of his son Anatoly’s death. And in spite of the fact that he seemed to have lost everything, he remained a good human being and became a father to an orphaned boy.
