Alexander Dovzhenko was among the greatest of Soviet directors and his EARTH is one of the undisputed masterpieces of the cinema (though his earlier ZVENIGORA is arguably a more revolutionary work). No single viewing of EARTH will ever reveal all of its poetic brilliance. In its compelling story, an old farmer dies and his grandson has a new vision to bring prosperity to his poor Ukraine village. Within such a deceptively simple framework, Dovzhenko spins a fascinating tale.

Intriguing, but I'd like to watch at least once more before commenting.
