A Year With Women: May 2015 in Films


So I got back on the band wagon in May and managed to watch almost a movie a day. I saw quite a few foreign films and shorts this month. As always, you can watch all my reviews for the films here on YouTube and after the cut I have all the films I watched, plus I highlight my five favorites that I watched.

Movie Quote of the Day – Krylya (Wings), 1966 (dir. Larisa Shepitko)


Krylya

Shura: Before the war, I lived in Moscow. But after the evacuation, I found myself here. So it goes.
Nadezhda Petrukhina: I have friends in Moscow. I haven’t seen them in about five years.
Shura: It would be great to see Moscow.
Nadezhda Petrukhina: Funny thing is, sometimes I set down to write them a letter and nothing comes of it. There’s nothing interesting to write about. I feel I should make something up.
Shura: Nothing interesting in your life? I would never have thought.
Nadezhda Petrukhina: Seems like I’m always running around, but it’s all for nothing. There’s no pleasure in it for me or for anyone else. That’s the way it goes.
Shura: I don’t know. I enjoy life. It’s just a shame that time goes by so fast.
