The Siege

Серия: "-"

Leningrad, September 1941. Hitler orders German forces to surround the city at the start of the most dangerous, desperate winter in its history. For two pairs of lovers - young Anna and Andrei, Anna's novelist father and actress Marina - the siege becomes a battle for survival. They will soon discover what it is like to be so hungry you boil shoe leather to make soup, so cold you burn furniture and books. But this is not just a struggle to exist, it is also a fight to keep the spark of hope alive. The Siege is a brilliantly imagined novel of war and the wounds it inflicts on ordinary people's lives, and also a profoundly moving celebration of love, life and survival.
