Kodanda Rama’s review published on Letterboxd:
A brutal representation of how war can torn lives apart even after it's over and supposed peace is achieved. It ain't a celebration or a happy life hereafter but a struggle to find footing, purpose and a reason to live. We find our two main characters stuck in this struggle in a hospital at Leningrad, just after WWII. Both get acquainted from the only fact that they fought together and managed to stay alive. It's a psychological struggle hereon to get a hold of their lives again from the devastation inflicted by war both physically and mentally.
It's an aching post war drama that's beautifully shot and brilliantly acted. I recall someone saying about this movie I didn't enjoy this movie but I found myself lost in it's world. That perfectly captures my feelings.
