Letter Never Sent (1960, Soviet Union, Michail Kalatozov) (English Subtitled)

TrailerTickets
A forest fire traps a geological expedition in a remote area of Siberia on a mission to find diamonds.

Classic socialist realism film that is enhanced by erotic melodramatics and powerful stylish nature images. What is remarkable is how quickly it can whip from being a realistic survival story to an impressionistic one, sometimes within the same minute. The cinematography is also shifting POV constantly.

Digital restored in 4K.
