a Soviet 'superman' fantasy/melodrama.

Fire and ice, over-the-top 1959 Socialist realism/fantasy. Strains credulity, but visually stunning.

I'm so glad that I could watch this movie. A great story, excellent lively perfomances, profoundly beautiful cinematography in black & white and magnificient scenery of Siberia. This movie was made in 1959 and remains powerful.

Typical of Soviet films that pay homage to the working class (and that includes its glorified scientists), lush musical scoring, dramatic B&W cinematography, Letter Never Sent amalgamates all these features into one symphonic work in the proletarian style. In the end, it's the Fatherland (or Mother Russia) that the film is dedicated.
