THE WAY BACK (M)

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

★★★ ■ GET­TING out of the gu­lag proves to be the easy part for the pro­tag­o­nists of this in­spi­ra­tional drama who es­cape a Soviet con­cen­tra­tion camp only to face a 4000-mile trek of a life­time – through snow, desert and over moun­tains – un­til they reach safety and free­dom in In­dia. Set in 1941, it’s based on a real life jour­ney and al­though these on-screen char­ac­ters and their re­la­tion­ships are a touch un­der­de­vel­oped it has much to say about the hu­man spirit. Some of the cin­e­matog­ra­phy is just as in­spir­ing.

Ex­tras: ★★ ½ A lengthy and like­able jour­ney of the jour­ney fea­turette.
