Lost in Siberia is a 1991 film which was an Anglo-Russian co-production. It was shot entirely in Russia, either on location or at Mosfilm Studio. The post production was started at Mosfilm Studio and completed in London.
The film follows Andrei Miller, an English archeologist played by Anthony Andrews, as he gets arrested. Mistaken for an English spy with the same name, he gets sent to a labor camp. A romance develops between him and the camp's doctor, which attracts the anger of the camp's chief. He gets sent to one of the infamous Kolyma labour camps. In an ambiguous ending, he is released and goes back to his pleasant life, or that is just a delusion that he has while dying of cold and hunger. It was directed by Aleksandr Mitta, who had directed many blockbusters in Russia and later emigrated to the United States.
The film was Britain's entry to the Cannes Festival's competition in 1991.
