Country: Soviet Union
Poet and filmmaker Yevgeny Yevtushenko wrote and directed this metaphorical look at his fictionalized early life, set in 1941 when Muscovites were abandoning their city because of the war. Nine-year-old Zhenya is overwhelmed by the crowds and tearful good-byes. As he heads toward Siberia and home, Zhenya meets a woman bandit and is intrigued by her enthusiasm for life and whatever of value she can swipe from it.
