Review by Library Journal Review

A giddy-in-love young Russian couple, Boris and Veronica, are separated by war when Boris is assigned to the front lines. With no word after one year, Veronica settles for a loveless marriage while continuing to hold out hope for his return. Mikhail Kalatozov's impassioned story is told with dramatically stylized cinematography. The disc image is practically flawless, showing the bold camera work to great advantage. For all collections.
