Quiet Flows the Don
(DVD)


Based upon Mikhail Sholokhov's Nobel Prize winning novel, Quiet Flows the Don is a spectacular, sprawling epic of the Russian Revolution and an honest, intimate drama of two lovers lost in the storm of history. Though internationally praised as "the Soviet Gone With the Wind," this 1957 crowning achievement of popular Soviet filmmaking was gutted by its US distributor when released here in 1960. For the first time on US DVD, Kino offers the full-length cut of director Sergei Gerasimov's legendary masterpiece.
