Ballad of a Soldier (1959)

Dir. Grigoriy Chukhray

While set during World War II, Ballad of a Soldier is not primarily a war film. It recounts, within the context of the war, the suffering and loss inflicted on ordinary Russians. It depicts various kinds of love, the romantic love of a young couple, the committed love of a married couple, and a mother’s love of her child, as a Red Army soldier tries to make it home during a leave, meeting several civilians on his way and falling in love. Buy
