The Killers (1956)

Interesting student effort by Tarkovsky, nice craft and technique here, but nothing that transcends the Hemingway story it’s adapting. The tension worked better in the prose, I think.

Certainly a well made short film, but nothing to write home about.

I give it two and a half Swedes, and pork and eggs.
