"A vehemently original, beautiful, humorous, patriotic, sentimental journey." -Time

Russian soldier Alyosha Skvortsov is granted a visit with his mother after he single handedly fends off two enemy tanks. As he journeys home, Alyosha encounter the devastation of his war-torn country, witnesses glimmers of hope among the people, and falls in love. With its poetic visual imagery, Grigori Chukhrai's Ballad Of A Soldier is an unconventional meditation on the effects of war, and a milestone in Russian cinema.
