A powerful story about one man’s will to survive and escape to Freedom in the vein of Papillon and A Man Escaped. His struggle against the entirety of the communist system makes for an fascinating story from both an historical and psychological perspective. The script’s subject matter and locations are rarely seen in western film, and with a great cast of characters present a very original story set in an often overlooked political era. The story is structured well, following Yuri across many years of his life, through multiple prisons and mental hospitals. Each one presents a new challenge of survival as he struggles to escape while enduring both physical and mental torture. Overall, Yuri is a Compelling film, appealing to fans of historical and political cinema like MIDNIGHT EXPRESS and ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST, as well those who enjoy stories of human will and triumph against all odds.
