No Path Through Fire
В огне брода нет

The debut feature from Gleb Panfilov, marking his first collaboration with his future wife and muse Inna Churikova, No Path through Fire is a classic of sixties cinema. Set during the Russian Civil War and following the fate of military nurse Tanya, the film poses a profound question: will there be a place for love and art in the revolution? Panfilov’s earnest humanism and philosophical dialogues play out against a backdrop of fragile idealism, faltering romance, and wartime destruction. The supporting cast features the cream of Soviet acting talent, including Anatoly Solonitsyn and Maya Bulgakova.

A Masterpiece, indeed
Please, let us have more films from this superb director and of course anything with Inna Churikova. I direct members of Klassiki to see the other film she is in on the site's library, "A Beginning", which is another masterpiece.
