Quiet Flows the Don

A digital remastering of the 1957 epic film, with English subtitles. The original international release of the film cut it to just over 100 minutes. This is the full director’s cut: 330 minutes. As rich and multi-storied as the novel, this is the Russian Gone with the Wind, a tale of love and civil war, pride and deceit. Filmed on location, it has an authentic feel and many memorable scenes. A must see.
