Celebrated director Peter Todorovsky' s film "Wartime Romance" opened in Strasbourg Tuesday night at retrospective of Soviet and Russian cinema
The event, which recently became a tradition, is devoted to the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II. "I have chosen this movie for the opening because it tells us about ever-lasting human values like love between a man and a woman, kindness, compassion - feelings that are common in all countries," Todorovsky said. The festival is screening director Mikhail Kalatozov's film "The Cranes Are Flying", which won the Golden Palm award at Cannes in 1958, and also director's Grigory Chukhrai's film "Ballade of a Soldier", which won the same award in 1960. Besides past greats, among modern Russian films playing are director Lidia Bobrova's "Granny" and Stanislav Govorukhin's "Bless the Woman". Director Galina Yevtushenko's 2004 film "Attic Story", will also be shown. The festival runs from March 22 until April 4, screening eight Russian films. The films will be shown in Europe's oldest movie theater, The Odyssey, built in 1913.
