A war movie seen through the home front. Rather a little late for a war movie, so it thrived for emotion rather than war action, since there are more emotional conflict back where the loved ones await. A solid drama, love story and tragedy that even overwhelms the poetry of the movie. Yes, the cranes flying is poetic, but the story had no need for it, poetry were in the eyes, hearts and minds of t... read more

My movie year 2012 (703 movies items)

"Kirjasto-DVD Hyvä elokuva sodasta ja kaikkea muuta mukavaa ja kivaa, mutta tällä hetkellä taide ei ole ihan jaksanut mielialaani petiin kaataa, jolloin seurauksena oli rankemman luokan silmien uupuminen kiihotuksen sijaan. En silti omaksi viakseni luetun huonon keskittymisen vuoksi mene kiistämään Lentokurkien oikeuksia, väkipakollahan tämä tuli katsottua umpeen menneen kirjastoeräpäivän vuoksi. Joskus toiste paremmalla mielellä sitten."

" Veronica and Boris are blissfully in love, until the eruption of World War II tears them apart. Boris is sent to the front lines…and then communication stops. Meanwhile, Veronica tries to ward off spiritual numbness while Boris’s draft-dodging cousin makes increasingly forceful overtures. Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 1958 Cannes Film Festival, The Cranes Are Flying is a superbly crafted drama, bolstered by stunning cinematography and impassioned performances.

"22/12/2011 (DVD, rewatch) Koska kauhuparhailu ei vielä riittänyt, niin piti vielä jatkaa B&N:n paketin saapumisen juhlimista yhdellä kaikkien aikojen suosikkielokuvistani. Ei muutosta pisteytykseen. "
