Letter Never Sent (1959 - 80min)


Director: Mikhail Kalatozov

Story by: Valeri Osipov

Cinematography: Sergey Urusevsky

Screenplay: Valeri Osipov, Viktor Rozov, Grigori Koltunov

Starring: Tatyana Samoylova, Evgeniy Urbanskiy, Innokentiy Smoktunovskiy


“The great Soviet director Mikhail Kalatozov, known for his virtuosic, emotionally gripping films, perhaps never made a more visually astonishing one than Letter Never Sent. This absorbing tale of exploration and survival concerns the four members of a geological expedition, who are stranded in the bleak and unforgiving Siberian wilderness while on a mission to find diamonds. Luxuriating in wide-angle beauty and featuring one daring shot after another (the brilliant cinematography is by Kalatozov’s frequent collaborator Sergei Urusevsky), Letter Never Sent is a fascinating piece of cinematic history and a universal adventure of the highest order.”
