The first indisputable masterpiece of post-Stalin cinema, _The Cranes are Flying_ is a fascinating intersection of politics and art.

A product of 'the thaw' promoted by Krushchev, and particularly his Secret Speech of 1956 acknowledging publicly Stalin's responsibility for Soviet casualties during the war, the film combines several trends apparent in other films, including the choice of World War II as a source of hero-images and the preference for private emotional truth over public identity and political rhetoric.
