From January 2001 through March there's a Soviet film retrospective at a theatre local to me, including the following films:The Letter Never Sent (1959)(Mikhail Kaltozov director)Heat (1963) (Larissa Shepitko Director)The First Teacher (1965) (Andrei Konchalovsky Director)I highly recommend The Letter Never Sent and The First Teacher. Really wonderful films , the black and white images are breathtaking.I went and saw;THE DEBUT (Gleb Panfilov 1970) which featured one of the Soviet Unions biggest starts Inna Churikova. She was amazing.And following that we saw another Panfilov film "No Path through the Fire" 1968. It was average but nothing special.Tomorrow at the National Gallery I will see what is considered one of the best Soviet Films,Ivan's Childhood (Andrei Tarkovsky 1962) and July Rain (Marlen Khutsiev 1966) which will be preceded by a poetic Documentary "WE" (Artavazd Peleshian 1969)This will end the series at the National Gallery. Having studied the Soviet Union as a Cold War major in college, this series has really given me a unique perspective on how life was there during the Soviet hey days.TMF MYCROFT
