Cranes Are Flying

For this Sunday's screen shots, another great World War II film - Cranes are Flying, a Russian film from 1957. You can't really do justice to it with screen shots - it's one of the most extreme, and breathtaking, pieces of moving pictures you will find - the name refers to a poem the heroine recites, but it might just as well refer to the camerawork - the camera is flying, swooping, spinning, running, everything.... It's a wonder to behold.
