Counterplan (Russian: Встречный, translit. Vstrechnyy) is a 1932 Soviet drama film directed by Sergei Yutkevich and Fridrikh Ermler. The film’s title-song called "The Song of the Counterplan", composed by Dmitri Shostakovich, with lyrics by the poet Boris Kornilov[1][2], became world famous and was adapted into "Au-devant de la vie", a notable song of the French socialist movement of the 1930s.

This film could be considered as a Stalin propaganda film. The plot involves an effort to catch "wreckers" at work in a Soviet factory.
