Critics reviews

It remains an implied rebuke to the auteur-based model of art cinema that’s ruled the West since the 60s. Everyone Ferraz interviewed describes it as a collaborative venture—one can’t credit its virtuosity, style, or content simply to director Mikhail Kalatozov or cinematographer Sergei Urusevsky or writers Yevgeny Yevtushenko and Enrique Pineda Barnet, as Western critics are wont to do.
