Marlen Khutsiyev Soviet Union, 1966

msmichel's rating of the film July Rain

Amazing picture. So happy to come across this one. Soviet response to new wave. 1966 picture reminiscient of Godard, Malle , Truffaut and perhaps a little La Dolce Vita as welll. Restless young woman flirting in and out of amourous adventures and encounters with upper class artistes trying to find her own identity. Not plot driven but pic certainly has a certain ennui. Available to watch on mosfilm youtube.
