In post-WWII Leningrad, two women, Iya and Masha (astonishing newcomers Victoria Miroshnichnko and Vasilisa Perelygina), intensely bonded after fighting side by side as anti-aircraft gunners, attempt to readjust to a haunted world. As the film begins, Iya, long and slender and towering over everyone - hence the film's title - works as a nurse in a shell-shocked hospital, presiding over traumatized soldiers. A shocking accident brings them closer and also seals their fates. The 28-year-old Russian director Kantemir Balogov won Un Certain Regard's Best Director prize at 2019's Cannes Film Festival for this richly burnished, occasionally harrowing rendering of the persistent scars of war.
