An overpowering emotional masterpiece.,
This review is from: The Cranes Are Flying (Region 2) [DVD] (DVD)
When I first saw this film in the 50s I stumbled out of the Curzon Cinema in tears and startled an elderly American tourist who wanted directions to Picadilly by sobbing "Go down the street and t-t-t-urn right and your th-th-there"!!! Magnificent camerawork and an outstanding performance from Tatiana Samoilova. This film has stayed in my memory ever since and it is wonderful to finally own it on disc.If you love great cinema and appreciate superb acting---don't hesitate.
