Excellent movie about human character
25 June 2007 | by (NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie only once back in Russia in early 1970. This movie was made very soon after 1960th, when there was a brief moment of freedom of expression after Stalin death and KGB atrocities were revealed to the public. It is nothing unusual to hear today, but in 1960 and in later decade such information was not welcome by the regime in power, as they were really not happy with the brief freedom of that period. As such this movies was rarely seen in 1970 and afterward. The move shows a Soviet pilot who was landed to save a friend on the German occupied territory. After he picked up his pilot friend, his plane exploded on take off, but he survived ( his friend died in the explosion). After avoiding Germans and coming back to Soviet held territory he was arrested as German spy, and he spend 10 years in the Gulag. After his release, he was trying to find his girlfriend (when he saw her picture in the Newspaper article). He meets numerous acquaintance of his girlfriend, but eventually he learns that she dies during the some classified test. All the people he met praise excellent charter of his girlfriend, even in the face of danger ( she defended some people against the KGB excesses). I say this is a rather rare movie of the Soviet Era, and must be considered a classic.
