The first instalment of Maxim Gorky's trilogy of autobiographies, all of which Douglas filmed over a period of seven years. The setting is transported from 19th century Russia to Scotland in the 1940s, but the picture of grit, determination and human warmth in the face of awful hardship is beautifully preserved.
