Black and red poster for a Soviet movie (original title: Severnaya povest). The two characters are standing in a dock as implied by the silhouettes of the sails. The composition reminds the viewer of burnt photography, a popular style of the time, but in this case instead of white, Szilvássy used red to increase the tension.
