A bold film about man versus nature. It’s such a classic theme but Kalatozov is so unique with his decisions and the characters are all so well crafted, this is truly a remarkable film. It had me sweating for the characters as they try to survive a spontaneous forest fire.
Both beautiful and sad and riveting, a very accomplished piece of cinema.
