The scenario's religious overtones notwithstanding, its brutal realism is overwhelming.
Audience Reviews for Voskhozhdeniye (The Ascent)
The tight shots of Sotnikov's face with an almost christ like aura about him was as haunting as it was beautiful!
Two soldiers go in search of food. Much transpires and character is revealed. Gorgeous, evocative cinematography. About the only flaw is a too prolonged and excessively melodramatic ending.
certainly a beautifully made propaganda. the christian imagery seems weirdly blatant for a soviet film. this is on mosfilm's youtube channel
