Letter Never Sent: The Criterion Collection

The great Soviet director Mikhail Kalatozov, known for his virtuosic, emotionally

gripping films, perhaps never directed one more visually astonishing than Letter Never Sent. This absorbing

tale of exploration and survival concerns four members of a geological expedition who are stranded in the

bleak and unforgiving Siberian wilderness while on a mission to find diamonds. Luxuriating in wide-angle

beauty and featuring one daring shot after another (the brilliant cinematography is by Kalatozov's frequent

collaborator Sergei Urusevsky), Letter Never Sent is a fascinating piece of cinematic history and a universal

adventure of the highest order.
