It's exactly what you'd expect: tepid, artsy, and grayish.

Thanks to Mr. Kalatozov's direction and the excellent performance Tatyana Samoilova gives as the girl, one absorbs a tremendous feeling of sympathy from this film -- a feeling that has no awareness of geographical or political bounds.

A key post-war effort, both for its cinematic audacity and for its frank, moving depiction of families and lovers torn apart by violence.
