      Ballad of a Soldier is a russian film about the life of a young russian man and his the futility of war. It was made in a time when the artistic freedom in soviet union had increased, and a lot of interesting cinema

      appeared as a result.

      It’s something of a melodrama really, as it mostly focuses on this young man’s love to a beautiful young girl he meets.

      Particularly one scene really made me speechless, and that is when the young man and his girlfriend ...


      • travels on a train, looking out on the stunningly beautiful russian landscape together.

        This scene feels so real and true I almost felt dizzy.

        It’s amazing how reality can be captured like that only with the help of a camera and some actors.

        However, that sense of reality wasn’t there all the movie through, and sometimes it wanted to be a little bit too much, and it wasn’t well balanced enough for what it was trying to be.

        But sure, memorable russian cinema without a doubt.
