This film does an excellent job of portraying the post war confusion facing the Russians after WWII. While I enjoyed the cinematography, the script, and the great performances of the cast, I found this movie to be unnecessarily long with many shots of people just staring off into space (Iya's PTSD notwithstanding), presumably contemplating their next action or words, or maybe just out of numbness or shock to their situation. There were also many character choices that seemed be things that real people just wouldn't do. I'm sure they were deliberate attempts to make the viewer uncomfortable, which they did, but also succeeded in making this viewer start losing interest at times.
