Cranes (1969)

Mark Bernes. Music: R. Gamzatov. Lyrics: I. Frenkel
Description: The title of this song and the movie have the same source, the legend that the cranes depicted here were the souls of the soldiers fallen in the faraway war. Here popular actor and singer Mark Bernes embues the song with almost mystical connotations. Bernes recorded it realizing his days were numbered. ‘This one is my last song, my testament,’ said the terminally ill singer.
