Hugely popular in its home country, yet little known abroad and rarely screened, this Dostoevskian Soviet film concerns the attempts of a man with a criminal past to find serenity and beauty after being released from prison. This Mosfilm production was written and directed by Vasily Shukshin, who died tragically the year this film was released.
