In 1942, Belarus is in the hands of Nazis and the local militia. Sushenya is taken from his house in the middle of the night by Burov and his sidekick Voitik, two partisan fighters hiding out in the hills and forest. Sushenya is the only one of four captured rail workers who has been allowed to live by the occupying Germans after seemingly sabotaging the rail tracks. With the village and even his wife turned against him as a collaborator, Sushenya accepts what must happen next until the Germans suddenly appear and he is - perhaps - given a second chance, leaving space for doubt both on his betrayal and on the legitimacy of punishment by death. The three and later two - men walk in the wood, exhausted, fleeing death from the Nazis while discussing and living the moral dilemmas of treason, heroism, guilt and revenge.
Shot in sumptuous long takes and vibrant colour, In the Fog ultimately questions the corruption of man's very humanity in the context of war. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition DVD.

The film takes place in German-occupied Russia circa 1942. A rural community has been devastated by the war and the countryside has been divided into those in the resistance and those that are sympathizers. Although that distinction seems rather black or white, most of the citizens are not political and/or have not made particularly conscious choices. As a bigger battle rages around them, they are looking to get by and have been boxed into cooperating or fighting with little middle ground. We see this distinction with the film's three protagonists. The movie begins with two resistance fighters (Vlad Abashin as Burov and Sergei Kolesov as Voitik) crossing the forest to apprehend a suspected sympathizer (Vladimir Svirski as Sushenya). Sushenya was a German prisoner who was released from captivity even as those he was arrested with were put to death. Even though Burov was a former friend, the fate does not look good for the upright Sushenya who proclaims he did not strike a deal with German officials. On the journey back to the resistance camp, the three face an ambush. In its aftermath, we follow flashbacks that delineate how each of the men arrived at this point.
And that is the strength of "In The Fog." In these stories, we see each start down a path that they never intended. Small actions and confrontations had long-range repercussions. Sushenya is noble and dignified and it is his honor and loyalty that are questioned by his friends and family. Burov is hot-headed, and his pride led him into present circumstances. But still, he tries to do right. And Voitik is more opportunistic, his choices are not moral or political but based on survival instinct. As these men are thrown together, we see how this dynamic plays out between them. But in general, the war is a much bigger obstacle and they are all consumed by their roles in it. Again, this isn't about action or fighting (although there is a bit of both). Rather it is about a quiet contemplation that comes with accepting the limitations that life puts on you. Circumstances don't have to define you, but they invariably affect you to the very core. As I said, I didn't love "In The Fog" as an entertaining experience, but I've thought about it a lot. In my mind, that makes it a success. KGHarris, 9/13.
During the course of the movie, we see three main characters put into situations that put their lives in jeopardy and shows their true nature. By the same token, each one of them goes through the flashbacks of memories that show how they became who they are and how they are dealing with their current circumastances. There are local people, who have to deal with German occupiers, local residents who collaborate with Germans and represent occupational police and partisans (i.e. communists) who are fighting against the Germans and their collaborators. This is deeply moving drama about the human nature in extreme circumstances. It is meditation about the good and evil, right and wrong and exploration if the two can coexist at the time of war. How much is human being willing to sacrifice in order to do the right thing or what will any human being do simply to survive?
I was so touched by this film, because it is so true to the events and circumstances that people (civilians) experienced during WWII. I could not shake off this movie out of my head for a long time. For reviewers who claim that movie was "too slow" all I have to say is that they were not paying any attention to subtle scenes that were taking place every minute of the movie. In short, I will not hesitate to say that those reviewers are ignorant air heads who should not have watched let alone reviewed this movie at all.
And I must admit that I loved the actors. Especially the ones in the lead roles. But main accolades go to director who is probably one and only movie director who not once showed death as it was taking place in some of the scenes. We only saw the aftermath. And at the end not even that. Because at time of war, everything is fog. Only each individual knows their true nature of character and conduct, no matter how it may be interpreted or viewed by others.
