Clear Skies (Russian: Чистое небо, translit. Chistoe nebo) is a 1961 Soviet romance film directed by Grigori Chukhrai. It won the Grand Prix (in a tie with Kaneto Shindo's The Naked Island) at the 2nd Moscow International Film Festival.
The film takes place in the USSR during the 1940s and the 1950s.
During the war pilot Alexey Astakhov fights, gets captured and then manages to escape. In peacetime Alexey is treated with distrust and suspicion - he is a soldier who had been in captivity and thereby has "stained the moral character of the Soviet pilot." Alexey suffers, can not find work in his field nor a place in life. Sasha Lvova's love which she has carried through the war and the difficulties of the postwar period saves him. After the death of Stalin, Astakhov is called to the Ministry of Defense, where his military award is returned. Alexey returns to the squadron and tests planes.
