In The Fog 2013

NR CC
3.7 out of 5 stars (33) IMDb 6.8/10

It is 1942 and the western edge of the USSR is under German occupation where local partisans are waging a brutal war against their foreign enemies. Sushenya, an innocent rail worker, is arrested with a band of saboteurs when a train is derailed not far from his village. The German officer decides to set him free rather than hang him with the others, but rumors of Sushenya's treason spread quickly.

understated character study. a piece on how war affects people in different ways. all struggling to survive with different characters making different choices from nearly the same circumstances. a fine reflection on the way people and morals break down from the stress of war. somber in tone and character. excellent acting. you feel like youre in Belorussia in 42. peter rinaldi natchez ms

In order to see this movie, the viewer must love foreign movies - that means reading subtitles. This is drama, set in a small village in Russia during WWII. As many have said many times "at the time of war, rules of law does not apply". So how does morality apply in the circumstances that defy all humanity, compassion and decency? This film explores three different characters set in a situations where revenge against one of them is supposed to take place for supposedly betraying three other men who sabotaged German controlled railroad. Sushenya, local man and one of the railroad workers knew the saboteurs, but chose not to participate in derailing the train tracks. Even a high ranking German officer can see that Sushenya is decent man and offers him to become local collaborator, which Sushenya declines. That puts him in a situation where is no not trusted (nor protected) by anyone - Germans or the local villagers. Sushenya is a dead man, not trusted by anyone and yet deeply moral and decent man.

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.

The aptly titled "In The Fog" from filmmaker Sergei Loznitsa is an arthouse mood piece that won't necessarily appeal to viewers expecting some sort of WWII epic. It has a scrambled narrative timeline, fairly stoic protagonists, long stretches absent of dialogue, and lingering and stationary camera work. It creates a dreamlike state where every character is facing a world NOT of their own devising and just doing the best they can to survive. Are their choices right? Are they wrong? Are they somewhere in between, perhaps in the fog? Whatever the answer, there seems to be an extremely limited number of options! Loznitsa is responsible for 2010's "My Joy," and supporters of that picture can see some of the same filmic elements utilized here (albeit on a more intimate scale). Some, however, were confused by that dark and challenging parable about contemporary Russia due to its storytelling devices. "In The Fog," while no less compelling, is structured in a less experimental way and is infinitely more linear and straightforward (even though it tells three alternating stories in flashback). While not necessarily an entertaining movie, "In The Fog" has a silent power that creeps up on you and the experience has lingered with me. It is a quiet and contemplative film that gets under your skin.

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.

This is a thought provoking movie which takes place during WW2. NOT your everyday war movie in the least. If you have the patience then watch. You may not be satisfied in the end either. I found it to be very good.

Film making at its peak! Forget about those reviewers who gave poor rating, this movie is the product of a very talented man. The movie is good not only for cinematographic qualities (directing, photography, acting) which is the main reason why we watch movie indeed, but also for its depth and honest analysis of human condition. In this respect the movie is a russian artistic product at its best combining the visual qualities of a tarkovsky with the intellectual magnitude of Dostoevsky. A must see for everyone who thinks cinema is not just about entertainment.

Out of curiosity, before I see a film here, I read the 1-star reviews and some of the 4 and 5 stars.
In The Fog, I can assure you, is not for people who think a good movie is measured by nonstop action and
fast dialogue-think The Expendables 2-thus the 1-star reviews by people after seeing In the Fog.
Perhaps these are the same people who drive theater ticket sales for action blockbusters and force Hollywood to keep making bad movies. I don't know.

All I can say is, the one who gave this one a bad review have severe ADHD and wouldn't know greatness in film.

And greatness it is.

It attempts to turn a mirror onto the savagery of German occupied Bellorussia during WW 2, but the Germans are rarely seen.
The people are who are on trial here: who collaborates, who fights as partisans, etc. These people know they will be judged by history.
Th tension builds. Th emotions run high.
The movie would seem to move slow to the uneducated. But one with an eye for human drama knows that real life drags on at the same pace.
The cinematography is good as well. Most of the film is shot in the forest.

The story is of one good man's efforts to die honorably for the sake of his family and hi name. Falsely accused by the partisan fighters-whom he'd known since childhood- of collaboration with the Germans, he is taken from his home and ordered to be shot.
But things go wrong for his executioners, and he is able to relate his story and gain a temporary reprieve.
His discussions with the partisans deals with th mood and psychology of a people in wartime and the choices they make under duress.

I cannot write a professional review.
