Movie Info

This stark British/Norwegian film closely adheres to the text of Alexander Solzhenitsyn's book One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. The day in question is one which is full of small triumphs for a dissident sentenced to ten years in the Gulags (prison labor camps) of Siberia. Ivan (Tom Courtnay) manages to grab some extra food, lives through the day without being sick and without causing the guards to give him undue attention. These and other small events make this particular day especially memorable. This movie was filmed with careful attention to authenticity in its settings, a fact that is evident in the final product.
