This Russian tale of a young couple separated by war won the grand prize at Cannes in 1957 and became a worldwide success. It's exactly what you'd expect: tepid, artsy, and grayish, though it has surprising bursts of sincere sentiment. The girl, Tatyana Samoilova, has the kind of clear face the camera loves, which helps a lot. Directed by Mikhail Kalatozov (I Am Cuba), once Stalin's head of film production. In Russian with subtitles. 94 min.
