Beanpole

Set in Leningrad in the months after the conflict, <i>Beanpole</i> focuses on the friendship of two former soldiers (Viktoria Miroshnichenko and Vasilisa Perelygina) as they grasp for some semblance of normalcy amid the rubble and rationing. It’s a bleak portrait, but its narrow scope and the lived-in performances keep the film from sinking under its own weight.
