One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich

Caspar Wrede’s profoundly stark and bleak yet rarely seen adaptation of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn‘s classic novel.
Released in 1970, the film faithfully presents a single day in the life of Ivan Denisovich – superbly portrayed by Tom Courtenay – who is serving a ten year prison sentence in one of Soviet Russia’s infamous Siberian gulags.
