No Path Through the Fire

Episodic and dramatically unfocused, this 1967 Soviet film by Gleb Panfilov is held together mostly by Inna Churikova's fine performance as a young artist and nurse during the civil war that followed the 1917 revolution. Though emotionally volatile, she's also a committed communist willing to make sacrifices for the cause. What's most interesting here is the way Panfilov presents the revolutionary debates of 1918 during the revisionist 1960s: in one scene a hard-line commissar, responding to a comrade who's expressed doubts about bloodshed, criticizes him as “too delicate.” Filmed in black-and-white 'Scope; also known as No Ford Through the Fire. 95 min.
