It’s May 1942 on a remote artillery base. Tired of drunken, womanizing soldiers, Sergeant Vaskov is handed an unlikely solution in the form of an all-female regiment, fresh from training. As Vaskov adjusts to them, we glimpse, through flashbacks, their civilian and domestic pasts.

masterpiece.stunning frames and successful editing.I liked every character's emotionally charged flashback scenes.Even current time in the movie portrayed with b&w consistency of the overall picture had a painterly style.There was a great balance at spaces on stage.for example bath scene of girls was looking like a painting jean leon gerome's.this is my opinion.Im sure director was influenced by this man.
158 m version. Rostotsky's WWII set film is a powerful and oft-moving tale of a sergeant holding off a troupe of German soldiers with only a handful of women soldiers. This Academy award nominated film well stands the passing of time remaining a powerful depiction of war, hope and survival.
The Dawns Here are Quiet, with its closeups on Communist symbols, nostalgic dream sequences, and regular odes to the Motherland, doesn't stray too far from party history - this is not Come and See. But its depiction of battle is tense and realistic, particularly the scenes of guerilla warfare in the North Russian wilderness, and the film pays a deserved tribute to the millions of women who fought and died in WW2.
Hermosa película. Un trabajo de escritura y dirección brillantes que me mostraron una cara para mí desconocida de Rusia, su guerra y sobre todo el valor de sus mujeres.
Se hace un poco larga, pero con descansar al final del capítulo 1 mantiene muy bien el ritmo.
(3.7) Un filme con un solo punto de vista se vuelve interesante. Nunca vemos la visión de los alemanes, solo se mira el lado de los soviéticos y su visión del mundo. De algún modo, es una mirada machista en la cual las heroínas son lideradas, conducidas, perdonadas por el hombre que ve mejor que ellas la estrategia de la guerra. Con unos flashbacks elaborados desde el color y cierta teatralización, poca música...
Suddenly, monochrome turned into color. Beautiful / colorful memories and monotone / fearful reality. Finally Vaskov remind of died girls in colors meaning those death are so fresh for him, and maybe he thought never to forget.
