Black Ear and White Beam
Stanislav Rostotsky's Oscar-nominated work
Stanislav Rostotsky's Oscar-nominated work touched the hearts of viewers not only of the Soviet Union, but also of many other countries of the world. The film, like the book, tells about the fate of an albino dog and Ivan Ivanovich, a former participant in the war. Kindness and greed, mercy and cruelty, all this creates a cult image of the work.
The film perfectly shows the scenes of betrayal and cruelty towards Bim. At the same time, the film maintains balance without slipping into melodrama. Cinema screening, like its printed counterpart, is imbued with a great love for nature and man. The director is not afraid to show the bad sides of people, and this greatly affects the impression. Stanislav Rostotsky does not smooth out the corners and shows the most heartbreaking scenes from the work of Gabriel Troepolsky. Due to this, a separate world is created, into which the viewer is immersed.
The script retains the features of the original book, bringing a good rhythm to the development of the plot. Thanks to this, the audience does not notice the passing time. The timing of 3 hours is fully justified and compensated for by a high-quality study of the script. The authors of the picture perfectly managed to convey the emotions of reading. So much so that the movie causes subconscious fear and thoughts: "I won't review it for sure, my nerves just won't stand it."
Gabriel Troepolsky adored nature and the book paid great attention to its description. Stanislav Rostotsky did not miss this important detail, inserting a large number of fascinating frames. The depth and elaboration of characters is one of the most important components of the success of both a literary source and a movie. The film impresses with an incredibly accurate rendering of the characters' characters.

Any film is created thanks to the foundation in the form of knowledge and experience of the director. Continuity and respect are what distinguishes a professional from an amateur, and this can be traced in the work of Stanislav Rostotsky. Films that are able to convey feelings through huge time intervals are art. And the "White Bim Black Ear" is among this number of rare representatives.
