[КРЫЛЬЯ aka KRYLYA]
For her first feature after graduating from the All-Russian State Institute for Cinematography (VGIK), Ukrainian filmmaker Larisa Shepitko trained her lens on the fascinating Russian character actress Maya Bulgakova, who gives a marvelous performance as a once-heroic Russian fighter-pilot now living a quiet, disappointingly ordinary life as a school principal. Subtly portraying one woman's desperation with elegant, spare camera work and casual, fluid storytelling, Shepitko, with WINGS, announced herself as an important new voice in Soviet cinema. (Note courtesy of Criterion Collection.) DIR Larisa Shepitko; SCR Valentin Ezhov, Natalya Ryazantseva; PROD V. Maslov. USSR, 1966, b&w, 85 min. In Russian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
