Most of the filming took place in Keila-Joa village, Estonia. However, some scenes were filmed at the Lenfilm Studios in Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg). Dubbing and post-production was done entirely at the Lenfilm Studios in Leningrad (Saint Petersburg) where Dmitri Shostakovich supervised the symphony orchestra recording his score. See more »
Film is like a poem - nothing can be added, nothing can be taken away. Black and white shades only add to the graphic drama. Acting is as powerful as a storm on the high seas. I strongly recommend also "King Lire", also in black and white and in the same "Olympic" quality. Note! - not for the blockbuster lovers,movie is very artistic, it requires you to actually understand what is being said.
