Film reveals more destalinization and emerges an extremely well made adventure-love opus which has a taking mood and story despite the propaganda line.

A female sharpshooter, taking back a White Russian prisoner during the Revolution, is marooned on a desert isle with him. They fall in love, only to have it end in tragedy when she shoots him rather than be rescued by Czarist soldiers searching for him.

Well acted, expertly mounted and with slick love tale, inspite of the hefty qualities of the girl, this is entertaining. [Pic is from the story by Boris Lavrenyov, previously filmed by Yakov Protazanov in 1927.]
