love this movie highly recommend.

I think it's always difficult to portray hardship and endurance in films purely because you only experience it for a couple of hours or so. This had me understanding the terrible conditions for real....i think. The search for water in the Gobi desert had me thinking twice about attempting the same thing as a holiday. Make up was fantastic and the bleakness of the scenery was soo beautiful

the movies good!!!

This great Movie sometimes feels like a National Geographic book that you enjoy from your seat Yes, the Characters do get some malnourishment , and some do die from the trek, but the lighting is made well the clothing the actors ware draws you in as a viewer to believe the place and time is relevant ,to say the least, and the escapees do bond enough to make it as a team, but there is, unrealistically, not enough conflict and Drama. It is all handled in such a delicate way, that it is too delicate for its own good. It is without much tension and it all plays out so gentile that the Movie is OK to watch but there is way too little to feel, what would make the movie better, is more conflict and more drama, they don't explain the other stories of the other escapees, like what happened to valka, and the other guys , its okay just wish it was more engaging

4,000 Miles To Peace

Movie Review: "The Way Back" (2010)

The last movie by star-director Peter Weir, who had delivered a streak of two remarkable films in motion picture history with "The Truman Show" (1998) starring Jim Carrey and "Master & Commander" (2003) starring Russel Crowe, strikes his final stroke of cinematic paint with exceptional "National Geographic" funded cinematography by long-time collaborating cameraman Russell Boyd, when the 125-Minute-Final-Cut by Academy-Award-nominated editor Lee Smith reaches each and every characteristic of fleeing a Russian "World-War-II" refugee "Gulag" prison camp in Siberia through snow and ice over creeks in the woods, Mongolian deserts to showdowns at an monk-inhabited Himalayan monastery before the Indian borders reveal itself as beacon of each journeying passenger's revelation.

The cast comes along with strong convictions into an unbreakable endeavors of the human spirit to endure the impossible of finding the way back home (aka peace). Director Peter Weir, at age 65, directs the ensemble surrounding Ed Harris, Saoirse Ronan as come-and-gone local caretaker Irena to join a random-selected her-life-endangering bunch of prisoner-of-war escapists, including Colin Farrell, revealing dark siding manners of a former street life and actor Jim Sturgess as Janusz, who acts in a strong convicted opening interrogation scene executed by Russian NKVD (People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs), but fading in his performance towards more and more story-driven visuals as emotional score beneficiaries composed by Burkhard von Dallwitz, when Peter Weir's film can be enjoyed as pure, well-researched as educational survival drama, still prevailing in cinematic significance after its neglected World-Premiere on September 3rd 2010 in favors of Telluride Film Festival instead engaging Venice or time-near Toronto (TIFF).
