"Within the Whirlwind": This dramatic film directed by Marleen Gorris in 2009 had hardly received any attention at the moment when it was delivered because of the crash of the markets at that time.
Its subject is Stalin's reign of terror. The story is based on a real incident and personality. Evgenia Ginzburg, a literature professor, was sent to 10 years hard labor in a gulag in Siberia. Emily Watson as Evgenia Ginzburg is doing a persuading job as character actress. Even for the beauty of the poetry of russian writers (poetry against agression and bestiality - poetry as a survival elixir) frequently recited by the protagonist this movie is extremely hardwarming.
