Soviet Movie Café: War Dramas V

Esteemed Readers, among our wonderful war movies there are ones raising an important question about a hard female destiny during the wartime. Indeed, it is a very sensitive matter to be discussed even at present as the women made the war & their role must be re-pondered. There were female troops fighting for liberation from the fascism. There were too many women-heroes who remain unknown yet.

The movie “The Dawns Here Are Quiet” (1972) made by Stanislav Rostovky, one of our great war movie director, & based on a war story by a famous Soviet war writer Boris Vasiliev is focused on a garrison of Russian female soldiers fighting at the Eastern front. It shows various sides of the warlife from a female point of view, make us think how difficult it was for women of that terrible time to find strength & courage to battle & tenderness to keep the proper female qualities. This war drama’s plot is rather intense & sad: almost all the girls perish while their little important deeds remain insignificant & without any reward. “The Dawns Here Are Quiet” reveals a silent female tragedy & calls to pay more attention to an important role of all the women during the Second World War.

Here is a perfectly dubbed English version. (If it doesn’t function, please, let me know). Enjoy the movie!
