Eclipse 1966: Крылья

Love those chairs.

Anyway, this is a Soviet movie made by an Ukrainian director. Unexpectedly current affairs relevant!

For once, I read the liner notes on the DVD before starting to watch it, and… perhaps I shouldn’t. Because they seemed to say that this was gonna be on par with a Tarkovski movie, and…

So far it really isn’t.

*reset expectations*

After resetting my expectations, this is a really intriguing movie. Very enjoyable actors, attractive cinematography, and I have absolutely no idea where the movie is going. At all.

Which is very unusual and refreshing.

Wings. Larisa Shepitko. 1966.
