USSR | 1966 | 85 min | b&w | director Larisa Shepitko, with Maya Bulgakova, Sergei Nikonenko, Zhanna Bolotova
For her first feature after graduating from the All-Russian State Institute of Cinematography (VGIK), Larisa Shepitko trained her lens on the fascinating Russian character actress Maya Bulgakova, who gives a marvelous performance as a once heroic Russian fighter pilot now living a quiet, disappointingly ordinary life as a school principal. Subtly portraying one woman's desperation with elegant, spare camera work and casual, fluid storytelling, Shepitko, with âWings', announced herself as an important new voice in Soviet cinema.
