Humorous at times since it’s a bunch of American actors playing idyllic Ukrainian peasants during WWII; and melodramatic as all get out; but the cinematography by James Wong Howe is what I came for and it doesn’t disappoint. Some great tracking shots and crisp, high contrast light and shadow make this one stand out.
