The final film from Larisa Shepitko won the Golden Bear at the 1977 Berlin Film Festival and went on to be hailed as one of the finest works of late Soviet cinema. In the darkest days of World War II, two partisans set out for food supplies, braving the blizzard-swept landscape of Nazi-occupied Belorussia. When they fall into the hands of German forces and come face-to-face with death, each must choose between martyrdom and betrayal, in a spiritual ordeal that lifts the film's earthy drama to the plane of religious allegory.

"Director Larisa Shepitko's sensibility is felt in each shot – from the black and white film's contrasting aesthetical decisions to the in-depth development of characters solving human drama in the context of war. The study of choosing between good and evil, between preserving your own principles and making decisions determined by fear of death unravels the question of acting or/and being to existential depths." (Mantė Valiūnaitė)
