The Cranes are Flying- FFR

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! 

QOL: human, meaning and truth
