    Trial on the Road is the second film adapted from his novelist father Yuri German which is a war drama set in 1942 western Russia during the Nazi occupation. This work demonstrates the German’s ´War´ & ´Memory´ theme and shows a unique worldview and superb view of cinematic power. Former Red Army lieutenant Lazarev gets captured by the Soviet Resistance and later become one of them. This is the movie that started German´s ordeal. The depiction of Lazarev, a weak-Nazi-renouncing-USSR-convert, displeased the government and marked German as person of interest. Trial on the Road focused on sensitive subjects that Russian films were reluctant to deal with at that time, and USSR inspectors did not tolerate such experiments. The film was accused of ´derangement and distortion of history´ and banned by the government. [JANG Byungwon]

Having worked with Lenfilm, the oldest studio in the Soviet Union, he made his first film with Grigori Aronov, The Seventh Companion(1968) and finished Trial on the Road(1971), inspired by a novel written by his father. The film, set during World War II, was immediately forbidden with the excuse that it distorted historical facts: it was not released until 1985.With the advent of the 1990s and the new political situation, German worked on Khrustalyov, My Car!(1998) and it is released after being presented in competition at the Cannes.In 2000, he began to work on Hard to be a God which completed by Svetlana Karmalita and by their son Aleksey German Jr. after he passed away in 2013.
