Apparently this scene is from a film directed by Andrei Tarkovsky, Ivan’s Childhood.

Yes, “Ivanovo detstvo”. Here the full movie, in Russian only unfortunately, the moment on the pic is after 36:13 time:
P.S. a song by Egor Letov, siberian rock/punk legend, inspired by the movie:

If you look up the summary, apparently this move was cute but ineffective. His love for her was “unrequited”, and little Ivan gets killed by the Gestapo. Thoroughly depressing movie, it would seem.

It is, actually just like most of Tarkovski stuff, it has this intense sombre vibe. Personally i don’t like his movies very much, except Andrei Rublev, that is beautiful one, even though kind of dark feeling too.
(interesting coincidence is that A. R. was made around the same year as ‘The agony and the ecstasy’ – at opposite ends of the world at the same time they made (a very long) film about one genius artist, of very different kind though..)

Tarkovsky has been on my to-do list for a while. I have one book on him and his SF film (Solaris?) looks very interesting.

The book I have is his novel treatment of Andrei Rublev, translated by Kitty Hunter Blair. The novel is described as a “kino-roman”.

Looked up the actress who played the nurse, Valentina Malyavina, and she’s got killer eyes. Doubly so, as she was sentenced to 9 years for a murder in 1977.

Good grief. So that is the girl above? She does have remarkable eyes.

Yup. I dated a young lady with eyes like that once….I guess it was smart of me to break it off in more ways than one. Either that, or not every set of pretty eyes is murderous.
