The eternal theme of Love and War
20 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

This film might be perceived by many as melodramatic and yet it is a delicate study of things that happen so often - people falling in love with those who are not capable to love them back, seeing people through the dream of love past and gone, being in love with those who are so opposite that it is only a matter of time for the love like a ticking bomb to explode and wound with hurt and pain. It is melodramatic indeed but yet so real - something that everyone can relate to, except it's a bit different when love happens during the war. The film is set briefly during the World War II and mostly in after-war time - probably in Moscow. The actors are magnificent - they did great jobs showing strength, vulnerability and humanity of the characters in that time when everyone was trying to get their lives back on track and in such desperate need not to be alone in that difficult time. Great found locations and after-war Soviet fashions give the film wonderful authenticity and the true feeling of that time. The song that is often heard throughout the film has a haunting quality - the lyrics are a constant reminder that everything might have been different if it wasn't for the war.
