The Cranes are Flying (1957)- Mikhail Kalatozov
Verdict: Watch it!
Veronica and Boris are in love….then war rips them apart. Sound familiar? In the case of The Cranes are Flying is not. Why? First, its Russian. Second, its a post Stalin anti-war movie. Third, the acting and cinematography are really well done. When looked at in its historical context, the movie is even more resonant. I’ll keep this short. Watch it!
