One of the truest and realistic depiction of Russian romance (maybe not only Russian) and life. No wonder it was immediately forbidden and never reached audiences. If you ever have an opportunity to see it, jump om it! I had a chance to see it in New York Lincoln Center Socsiety's presentation of Soviet Cinema of the 60's with was amazing, but this film was stuck in my mind for many-many month. It is not a type of film you can write about, it is very visual and goes far beyond words. It is a true cinematic experience. It is an only film directed by one of the most talented people of Russian cinematography, who wrote scrips for some of the best Soviet movies of that period.
