Fate of A Man (original title Sudba Cheloveka) is a 1959 movie by Soviet director Sergei Bondarchuk. The film shows the fate of the Russian soldier Sokolov in World War II as a captive of Nazi Germany. He is forced to work for the enemy all across Germany, while missing his family in Russia. Eventually, he makes a daring escape...

This movie was criticized by China, since the hero allowed himself to be captured by the enemy in a hopeless situation, rather than dying like a true Communist soldier.

This film features examples of:

  • Heroic BSOD: Sokolov gets one when he returns to find his home bombed and his family dead.
  • Whole Movie Flashback
  • Worthy Opponent: The German prison camp commander Muller, about to execute Solokov, is so impressed by his success at drinking a whole bottle of liquor that he lets him live.
"You are a true Russian soldier!"
