    In spite the repression of USSR, Aleksey German gets a chance to direct his 3rd film Twenty Days without War. German uses World War II as a background of film, adapting USSR State Prize-winning author Constantine Simonov´s novel. After the Battle of Stalingrad, a war correspondent & writer Lopatin travels to Tashkent´s hometown, Kazakhstan, etc. This film follows the 20-day journey of Lopatin and the people he encounters. The film transformed the contemporary screw-ball comic actor Yuri Nikulininto into a serious person. In this film German goes one step further than Trial on the Road. In this war movie there is no hero, and like the title represents the description of the war is also nonexistent. Lopatin played by Yuri Nikulin serves as an observer of fragmented episodes revealing director German´s worldview. [JANG Byungwon]

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.
